KNOXVILLE — From May 22 – June 4, state and local law enforcement agencies across the nation, as well as Iowa, will be stepping up seat belt enforcement. Memorial Day weekend kicks off the busy summer season with many more families on the roads. Iowa’s seat belt usage rate of 94 percent is one of the highest in the nation but the remaining six percent of vehicle occupants account for approximately half of all traffic fatalities.
