Common Results of Municipal Negligence
Because highways are used by so many motorists, it is critical that they are maintained and kept safe for drivers and other users of the road. However, when those responsible for road maintenance fail to do their duty, dangerous car accidents can occur. Some of the most common results of a municipality’s failure to keep highways safe include:
- Uneven payment
- Guardrail damage / loss
- Highway drop-off
- Construction negligence
- Absence of road signs
- Absence of warnings signs / signals
- Lack of clear lane divisions
These are all common results of municipal negligence when they fail to keep highways and roadways maintained properly throughout the year. This negligence can lead to serious car accidents and costly injuries.
