Any time you’re behind the wheel, it’s likely you’re on the lookout for negligent drivers who may be distracted, using their cell phones, or disobeying traffic laws. While it’s crucial to be aware of those individuals to reduce your risk of an accident, sometimes the road conditions can put you in a dangerous situation that’s outside your control.
The state and local governments are responsible for ensuring roadways are safe for travelers. It requires a significant amount of time and money to keep highways and local roads in a state that does not present any hazards. When the roadways are neglected, travelers may encounter unavoidable dangers that cause crashes.
