ATV Crashes in Iowa
ATVs and public roadways can be a dangerous mix, with fatalities occurring as a result of this combination. Despite the fact that these vehicles were not intended to be used on city streets, many Iowa communities permit ATVs to be driven on public roadways. When compared to passenger cars and other types of vehicles, ATVs are substantially smaller, and their riders are supplied with little protection in the event of a collision with another vehicle. The result of ATV accidents is that the rider frequently suffers catastrophic and even life-threatening injuries as a result of the accident.
