For many of us, the extra time at home these last few months meant watching a lot of TV. Many businesses and locations were shut down or workers may be doing their jobs from home, resulting in a significant reduction in the amount of traffic on Iowa roadways.

Law enforcement stopping speeders at more than 100 mph used to be rare, but recently has become all too common.
