I've reviewed the ISP injury reports for I-35 and I-80 in Iowa and have condensed those reports to eliminate those occurring on some road other than the interstate highway system. We have a total of 36 reported interstate accidents on Iowa's roadways. One person asked me this week where you find the speed limit for i-35 from Minnesota to Texas. Follow this link to Wikipedia and that should help you determine the speeds along with the way. As you are probably already aware, the speed limit changes as you get into larger cities and populated areas. Below are the reports. Email me if you need an accident evaluated or you just have questions about your rights in Iowa.
