Iowa man dies following a motorcycle accident

Residents of Iowa understand that some vehicles pose more risks than others. A motorcycle, although enjoyable to ride during the warm weather months, has the tendency to cause serious injuries or even death when an accident occurs with one of these vehicles. Even though there are some safety precautions riders can take, motorcycles do not include the same safety features as vehicles. In addition, motorcycles are often seen traveling together in a group. This could pose dangers for those within the group and to the vehicles traveling nearby.

Two fatalities following Iowa motorcycle accident

The warm months often mean spending time outside for Iowa residents. It is also a time when drivers witness more motorcyclists on the road, which in turn also increases the risk for accidents. In part, that is because motorcycles can often go undetected due to the small size of the vehicle and its ability to hide in the blind spot of other vehicles, which makes it especially important for drivers to remain attentive and be on the lookout for all types of vehicles.

Residents of Iowa understand that traffic can occur at any time. Whether it is during the day, evening or on a weekday or weekend; heavy traffic and delays can happen on roadways all over the state. During times of heavy traffic, it is important that drivers remain attentive. When a driver is following too closely to the vehicle in front of them or when they text and drive, an accident is likely to happen.
