MASON CITY, IA – Safety is on the mind of Iowa leaders as well, as a group of traffic experts gather to see what needs to be done to keep the roads in the state safe.
It’s been a little less than a year since the North Iowa Multiple Disciplinary Safety Team was created.
The group is made up of a wide range of folks, including the Iowa DOT and State Patrol.
Those in the group say these meetings are helpful and keep everyone on track.
“What we look at is safety related items within the community and especially that can be impacted by or impact the transportation in the area,” said Lieutenant Dan Schaffer with the Iowa State Patrol.
The meeting focused on how all members of the group communicate.
In the past they’ve also talked about winter road closures and reviewed accident data.
