Road Conditions That Can Be Considered Dangerous
A dangerous road can result from a faulty design, improper construction,
inadequate maintenance, or faulty adaptation to changing conditions. 20%
of all fatal road accidents involve cars running off the road or colliding
with a fixed object.
Dangerous types of road conditions include:
Uneven surfaces. Potholes can cause damage or cause a motor vehicle driver to lose control
of the car and veer. Loose or uneven surfaces can make it difficult to
break or can cause swerving.
Improper design. Hazardous dips, short merging lanes, and shoulder drop-offs could create
unsafe conditions for drivers. Without adequate warning signs, these hazards
can results in accidents.
Negligent construction. When a road construction company fails to follow approved plans or use
the proper materials can result in accidents and damages along the roadway.
Poor road maintenance. Inclement weather and constant wear can cause the roadways to erode, making
them susceptible for accidents to occur. This also includes broken guardrails,
deteriorated signs, worn off lane markers, and malfunctioning traffic lights.
Lack of safety. When crosswalks are not adequately visible to drivers, pedestrians who
use these crosswalks are exposed to danger.
