FMPD encourages safe holiday travels


As the Thanksgiving Holiday approaches many people will choose to take to the roads and highways of the state to visit family and friends and give thanks for what we have been provided, not to mention the football and turkey.

The Fort Madison Police Department, along with the Governor’s Traffic Safety Bureau, asks that all people drive in a safe and defensive manner. From our point of view, it is better to get to your destination, even if it may be a little late, than to not get there at all.

During this holiday time Law Enforcement Officers throughout the State of Iowa will be out enforcing Iowa’s seat belt, drinking and texting laws, as well as all other traffic laws, in order to ensure a safe driving holiday.

The Fort Madison Police Department wishes everyone a safe and happy Thanksgiving.
