Iowa Department of Transportation warns of dangerous roadways

It is not uncommon for residents of Iowa to watch the news in the morning before their commute. This helps them determine the traffic conditions as well as the road conditions. When inclement weather strikes the roads, drivers need to be especially aware of these conditions. Whether it is a snowstorm, fog, heavy rain or ice, drivers should be weary about traveling. Avoiding dangerous roadways could help a driver evade a serious car accident.

Iowa residents are often aware when a serious incident happens in their area. When a roadway is considered hazardous, the city or town will implement changes, especially if the road itself needs improvement. When particular intersections are deemed dangerous, the same changes should be carried out. Whether it is difficult for cars to reduce speeds because of a hill, the speed limit posted is too high or there is something obstructing the view for drivers, these hazardous conditions should be corrected in order to reduce the chances of an intersection collision.
