With increased travel during the holidays Iowans are reminded to be safe on the roads and fasten seat belts.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, nationwide in 2015 there were 301 passenger vehicle occupants killed in traffic crashes during the Thanksgiving weekend, and only half of those were buckled. During that time in 2015 and 2016 Iowa had five fatalities. Iowans are reminded to buckle up for every trip every time.
