Memorial Day weekend is upon us and AAA is predicting a record weekend for travel. Law enforcement will be cracking down on the "fatal four" all weekend.

What are the "fatal four?"

  1. Speeding
  2. Driving under the influence (alcohol or drugs)
  3. Not wearing seat belt
  4. Distracted driving (mobile devices a prime example).

Iowa State Trooper Jason Wilson told KWQC, "The biggest thing is that you have to make sure you stay safe on the roadways, this is still one of our big killers throughout America. Over 34,000 people a year lose their lives. We do not want a tragedy to take place during the holiday weekend.”

Put down the phone and click the belt this weekend and have a safe Memorial Day Weekend!
