Iowa special Traffic Enforcement Program (sTEP)   

Iowa's sTEP invites statewide participation by all law enforcement in Iowa in cooperative "high visibility" traffic enforcement effort coordinated around a holiday.  There are five enforcement events ranging from 4 to 14 days and three of the waves are in connection with national mobilization campaigns.  These events call for heightened traffic enforcement for all traffic violations with the main effort to raise awareness in safety belt use as the best means of protection in the case of a motor vehicle collision.
