Random Cars to be Selected in Iowa Traffic Checkpoint Friday


From http://www.kcci.com, October 3, 2013

The Central Iowa Traffic Safety Task Force is planning a traffic safety checkpoint in western Polk County on Friday night.

Authorities said vehicles will be systematically chosen by officers to enter the checkpoint. For example, it may be decided that every fifth vehicle will be directed to a station within the checkpoint.

Authorities said that once stopped, drivers can expect a brief visual verification that turn signals, brake lights, and headlights are functioning properly and that current licensing, registration and insurance documentation check.

Officers will be looking out for traffic violations as well.

Officers will distribute educational material emphasizing traffic safety during the stop.

Authorities said the event is designed to assist drivers and passengers by checking vehicle equipment.
