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.
Whether it is skiing, ice-skating, ice fishing, sledding or snowmobiling, various types of winter activities take place all over Iowa during January. Although most of these activities can be done with little or no risks, some do have potential dangers. For example, snowmobilers often travel near busy roads, and trails will often cross roads. This means they risk encountering other vehicles and even pedestrians. If a snowmobiler is not paying adequate attention, they could be involved in a serious motor vehicle accident.
