Safety Commissioner Carl Pesch said the department is "frankly worried" that a surge of high speed driving during April will cause a tragically high traffic death toll. Pesch said the department's concern that a speeding problem may develop in April is based on the fact that Iowa drivers felt "hemmed in" by poor road conditions over most of the winter. "We're afraid that spring highway conditions will act as kind of a release on many drivers and that the result will be a carnival of speed," Pesch said. If this happens, he commented, the state may see a tragic increase in the traffic death toll during April. Pesch urged drivers to prepare now for spring and summer driving by holding their speed at a reasonable limit, and by installing seat belts in the family car. He called seat belts the most effective safety device available on the market today for the protection of drivers and families.
