TRANSPORTATION MATTERS for IOWA

Message Monday - It's Columbus Day. Discover your turn signal.


10-10 message mondayIn fourteen-hundred-and-ninety-two Columbus sailed the ocean blue. Do you want smooth sailing for your commute? Use your turn signal to let the drivers around you know the move you’re planning to make. 

It seems like a simple gesture, but many people simply don’t make the effort. Seriously, it’s easy. Here are the directions: To move into the right lane, push your turn signal lever up. To move into the left lane, push your turn signal lever down. Activate the turn signal at least five seconds before you wish to change lanes.

The fine mentioned in this video is from California, but you actually can be fined in Iowa, too. FYI – the video was shot from a camera mounted in the car.  https://youtu.be/SHgkH1ouK7I

The fatality count of 285 is an increase of six from last Monday. To see statistics published daily by the Office of Driver Services, go to http://www.iowadot.gov/mvd/stats/daily.pdf
