STEP Traffic Enforcement Initiative to Start Tuesday

Area law enforcement agencies are stepping up patrols for traffic laws. The Iowa State Patrol, Knoxville Police, Pella Police and the Marion County Sheriff’s Office will have extra patrols alongside roadways as a part of the Click It or Ticket campaign starting Tuesday for the 4th of July holiday weekend. Lieutenant Paul Haase with Pella Police says that with more cars on the roadways, unsafe driving habits can cause more accidents. The increased patrol period ends on July 7th.
