Grants to Iowa law enforcement agencies in eligible counties for programs that help to reduce deaths and injuries related to traffic accidents. Funding is primarily intended for activities that address safety issues that fall within the following main areas of focus: speed, alcohol, occupant protection, police traffic services, emergency medical services, traffic records, roadway safety (engineering), motorcycles, and pedestrian/bicycle safety (Section 402). In addition, grants are available to support programs that combat the problem of impaired driving (Section 405d).

While 405d monies focus on impaired driving, other traffic safety activities, such as enforcement of seat belt, speed and stop light/sign violations are included.  Section 405d programs may include elements such as directed overtime enforcement, educational presentations, equipment, training and/or public information campaigns. Enforcement agencies requesting overtime are required to direct that overtime enforcement to high-risk times (typically evening) and at high-risk locations for impaired driving crashes and to participate in two special traffic enforcement efforts, one conducted at night, during the program. 

With a focus on impaired driving prevention, agencies are also required to conduct a minimum of 12 public awareness activities through media releases, news articles and/or educational presentations.

  1. Overtime for educational presentations
  2. Overtime for enforcement
  3. Training-related travel
  4. Educational materials (brochures, posters or other printed items with traffic safety information)
