What are the six levels of DOT truck inspections?

Federal trucking regulations require truck drivers and trucking companies to meet certain standards such as regular maintenance of the vehicles. Additionally, truck drivers are required to have special licensure and up-to-date medical information. In order to ensure that the vehicle and driver are complying with these regulations, the Department of Transportation conducts inspections. A driver and truck could encounter one or more levels of inspection to verify compliance.

Seeking financial recovery after a drunk driving accident

Encountering a negligent driver is a very concerning thought for drivers in Iowa. While in some situations such an incident could be avoided, it is almost completely out of the hands of an individual when and if they encounter a negligent driver. This is especially true with intoxicated drivers, and the destruction caused by a drunk driving accident could be tremendous.

Drunk driving: what are the visible signs of intoxication?

While automobile collisions are an unfortunate event to be involved in, drivers in Iowa may be aware that a common cause of car crashes is the negligence of one or more drivers. This could amount to the driver being distracted, fatigued, reckless or even intoxicated. If impaired driving is to blame, it is important to understand the elements of a drunk driving accident, and how an injured victim could hold the drunk driver responsible for damages caused by the incident.

When may speeding be a factor in a car collision?

It can happen to all drivers. An individual in Iowa is running late, and in order to get to his or her destination on time, he or she will drive faster. Whether this means exceeding the speed limit by one or 10 mph, speeding can create a dangerous condition on the roadway. Moreover, this situation could result in a speed-related accident, resulting in serious injuries or fatalities.
