  • Farm Bureau's Rural Roads Safety Slow Moving Vehicle Symbol Did you know that each year over 30,000 crashes involve SMV’s? Phillip Garvey did some research at Penn State University’s Transportation Institute conducted a survey and found that only 30 percent could correctly identify the symbol. This may actually be the problem. It will be interesting to see if the Trooper or Sheriff’s deputy’s investigation uncovers this fact.
  • Driver Safety: Does snow and ice on the road excuse the driver’s negli Officer Daniel notes major contributing circumstances include the roadway’s weather condition, the road surface condition and the first event is that the Palen vehicle crossed the center line. Let’s assume this to be the case. There are four factors to take into consideration. 1. There is a snow storm. 2. The roadway has snow and ice. 3. Palen crosses the center line. 4. Palen’s speed is fast enough for the weather conditions that the tires of her vehicle lose friction allowing the vehicle to slide out of control. The first question you have to ask yourself is at what point a person simply has to not leave the house, waits to drive on the roads, if already on the roadway to pull off of the roadway and wait for the weather to clear sufficiently that travel is once again safe. Iowa is a comparative fault state. What is fault as the law defines it? Fault is one or more omissions towards the person or property of the actor or of another which constitutes negligence or recklessness. It could mean misuse of a product, unreasonable failure to avoid an injury or unreasonable failure to mitigate damages. Iowa Code 668.1.

  • Auto Safety: Why do car and motorcycle accident cases take so long to conclude? Why do lawsuits take so long to conclude? That’s a question you may have asked before. Perhaps you’ve sat around the local diner complaining about the weather and as often will happen sooner or later the conversation turns to the lawyers or court system. Well let us explore the answer to that question in this White Paper offered by Steve Lombardi, Lombardi Law Firm.
  • Driver Safety: Starts before you turn the ignition key, by Steve Lombardi Tractor trailer drivers recommend that, when cars have to share the road with big trucks, the car drivers follow a few simple rules: don’t cut off the tractor trailer, since big trucks require a lot more room than cars to stop; be courteous and don’t try to race past a truck with its blinkers on; don’t drive alongside the truck, especially if you run the risk of disappearing in the truck driver’s blind spot. Although most accidents are caused by the commercial driver, a significant number of these accidents occur because driving a truck makes it difficult to fully see the surroundings and because many passenger vehicle drivers fail to respect the truck’s right to drive on the roads. Remember being courteous is a two-way street.
