When is Motorcycle Awareness Month in Iowa?

Despite the fact that it may seem like motorcyclists don't get much attention in the way of protection from injuries, some people are working to change that. In Iowa, Governor Terry Branstad has signed a proclamation that has made March Motorcycle Awareness Month.

Research shows direct link between texting and car accidents

If you've suffered as the victim of a car crash with someone who was on his or her phone at the time, you're probably all too familiar with the problems texting and driving can cause.

Pedestrians can be at risk when they're anywhere, even inside the home. Typically, pedestrian accidents involve people on sidewalks or crossing the road, but people can be injured by cars that crash into buildings or structures as well. For instance, if you were drinking coffee at a cafe near an intersection and a crash took place, it would be possible to be injured when the vehicle collides with the building. Because of a lack of protection against large vehicles, pedestrians who are struck are likely to be seriously injured or killed by the impact.
