Police Department to Conduct Enforcement Campaign near Liberty High School
From Feb. 20 through March 3, 2023, the North Liberty Police Department will join law enforcement agencies in Kansas, Missouri, Iowa and Oklahoma with increased enforcement near high schools to raise awareness of roadway safety. Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for people 15 to 18 years old in the United States — ahead of all other types of injury, disease or violence. Officers will issue citations to any individual who refuses to obey the traffic laws, whether it is for speeding, texting or failing to buckle up.
“Even one teen death is unacceptable,” said Chief Diane Venenga. “Please slow down, put the phone away or turn it off and always buckle up.”
Caregivers can help remind teens that driving is a privilege and encourage them to learn about the importance of driving safely.
