How will you be remembered?

Memorial Day is a day to remember those who make the supreme sacrifice for our county. Those military members who served and died protecting our freedom and their family members are owed a huge debt of gratitude.

 But what about you? How will you be remembered? Please don’t forever be known as a person who died in a tragic crash that could have been prevented.

Help ensure your legacy. Doing so requires just a few easy steps:

  • Buckle up
  • Slow down
  • Stay alert
  • Pay attention
  • Driver sober

Memorial Day is so much more than the unofficial start of summer. See how Decoration Day (Memorial Day) got its start in 1868 – https://youtu.be/CRXrfs0f1Fo

For 2018, there have been 106 fatalities reported. That’s an increase of five since last Monday. To see statistics published daily by the Office of Driver Services, go to the daily fatality report at https://www.iowadot.gov/mvd/stats/daily.pdf
