SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KCAU) – With Easter this Sunday, a lot more cars are expected to be on the roads. Many local Siouxlanders will be driving far to visit family and celebrate together.
With more cars on the roads, Iowa State Trooper John Farley says to use defensive driving practices; make sure you’re alert, you know where you are on the roadway and the other vehicles. Watch your speed and don’t drive tired.
“Because of the weather this year, we do expect an increase across our interstate and highway system people are going to be traveling for the Easter holiday. And we can’t emphasize enough, just like any other holiday, like Thanksgiving, Christmas whatever those holidays that give up the opportunity to spend time with friends and family we want to make sure people get there safely,” said Trooper John Farley.
The Iowa State Patrol has of the goal of less than 300 accidents this year, and they believe that with your help Iowa can be safer.
