A new report shows drivers with out-of-state license plates are much more likely to be stopped when they drive across Iowa.

The Des Moines Register reviewed 22,000 traffic warnings and tickets issued by Iowa State Patrol officers and found almost 86-percent were from out of state drivers.

One-third of tickets came from Illinois, California, and Colorado.

Officials with the Iowa State Patrol say the state where someone is from is only one factor considered when they pull over a driver.
