Driving at night

While driving at any time can be dangerous, the number of people who die from motor vehicle accidents that occur at night are three times the number of fatalities that result from accidents during the day. Iowa motorists who routinely drive at night may benefit from learning about the challenges nighttime drivers face and how they can remain safe on the road.

Physician disclosure might be malpractice

A court on the East Coast has ruled on a case involving disclosure of patient information in a way that could impact how Iowa doctors and hospitals do business. At issue were the applicability of different statutes of limitations to statements made by the physician about the patient without the patient's consent and the propriety of a private cause of action under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act.

Challenges for driving during the fall

Iowa motorists might like to know the particular dangers that the fall season brings while on the road. Shorter days and unpredictable weather are two challenges of fall driving. When heading to or from work, there may be more traffic and pedestrians since school is back in session. Drivers should watch for kids walking to and from school in neighborhoods and around school bus stops.
