It would be inaccurate to say that there is a single, foolproof way to avoid car accidents whether they are negligent or not.

In a 2014 Time Magazine report, occupations involving delivery came in at number eight on the list of the nation's most dangerous jobs.

Emergency medical service (EMS) workers provide the public with life-saving assistance on a daily basis. They respond to emergencies as they arise, often without a thought to their own health and well-being. It is safe to assume that many Iowa residents helped by EMS personnel would have perished without emergency assistance.
