    After so many incidents involving State Troopers in a few states, you would think that Iowa would require it’s Troopers to wear Hi-Viz coats or vests.

    However, wearing Hi-Viz coats are no guarantee of safety, witness the death of an Illinois State Trooper last week while assisting at an accident.
