WHY WE HAVE TRAFFIC LAWS. The Iowa motorist involved in a traffic accident resulting in property damage of $50 or more, or injury or death to any person, must, whether he is at fault or not, comply with one of the following requirements or suffer suspension of his driver's license and his vehicle registration plates: a. Have his insurance company send to the motor vehicle department written notice of insurance coverage in the amount of $5,000$10,000 for personal injury and $1,000 for property damage at the time of the accident. b. Or deposit security in an amount sufficient to pay the evalu- ted property damage and personal injury resulting from the accident, m tty Thevicl a c. Or file a release with the motor vehicle department, signed by other parties involved, relieving him of further liability in the accident. The purpose of the above "safety responsibility" legislation is threefold. First, it is hoped that these requirements may eventually result in a reduction in the number of accidents. Second, it enables victims of accidents to recover damages from careless motorists. Third, it acts to remove careless and financially irresponsible drivers from the highway.
