For the seventh time in a decade, a small Iowa City law firm has been the victim of a traffic accident. In this latest incident, its front porch was damaged when a car involved in a collision skidded into its stone foundation. A limestone pillar will have to be replaced.

Even if the signage was installed, “Depending on traffic patterns, collisions could increase, particularly rear-ending,” he says.
