Press release submitted by Daniel Loussaert, Iowa State Patrol

Tow ban in this area. This means only the DOT or Police can have a vehicle towed. We will only have vehicles towed when they are a safety hazard to other traffic trying to drive by.

Tow ban will be on until roadways and visibility improves. It's not worth having others get hurt trying to tow out a vehicle today, when it can safely stay put, until we can do it safely when conditions improve.

This includes all counties in this district ; Scott, Muscatine, Cedar, Clinton, Jackson and Jones.
