On a weekly basis I collect and then post wrong-way accident links from around the world. If a wrong-way driver or accident or crash, or collision comes across my radar screen I'll post the title and link along with the short description. They are all listed on the Lombardi Law Firm Site under the heading Wrong-Way Collisions on Iowa's Interstate and State Highways. You can read my findings about how to avoid a wrong-way accident by following this link. Of course our view is greater than just Iowa, but I'm an Iowa lawyer with a Florida license too, so it is what it is. Here are the links for February 10, 2011. [Wrong-way Collisions on Iowa's Interstate and State Highways.] As our friend Mr. Conrad would say on Hill Street Blues, "Let's be careful out there."
