Iowa State Patrol Offers Football Traffic Tips

Des Moines, IOWA – As we approach start of college football season, the Iowa State Patrol urges all fans traveling to and from games across the state to obey the following:

  • Slow down and expect heavy traffic delays.
  • Pay attention and avoid any unnecessary distractions.
  • Be patient if you encounter heavy traffic.
  • Obey all directions given by law enforcement officers.
  • Don’t drink and drive.
  • Buckle up!

Due to the many in-state college rivalries this weekend, more traffic is expected on Saturday.  Some fans will arrive several hours before kickoff, so traffic congestion can be expected several hours prior to and following the conclusion of the games.  Motorists not attending the game are encouraged to find alternate routes.
By following these simple tips, the Iowa State Patrol hopes everyone remains safe while cheering on their favorite team.
For further questions, please call Sergeant Scott Bright at (515) 745-2863.
