Road Safety: Road Maintenance Problems
We are so used to having well-maintained roads that potholes, loose debris, and unpainted roads are very noticeable to us. Our safety depends on the quality of our roads, perhaps more than many of us realize. Without proper maintenance, the roads we drive on can become unsafe – even dangerous. An unmaintained road can cause accidents which damage cars and injure or kill motorists. Your state and local governments have an obligation to keep the roads in good condition.
If you or someone you love has been injured or worse in a car accident caused by bad roads, you may be entitled to financial compensation.

Common Road Problems
Roads that haven’t been properly maintained pose a number of dangers. Some of the most common road flaws include:
- Potholes are holes in the road surface, caused by the breaking of the asphalt. They range in size from large cracks to several feet in diameter and depth, and a large pothole can ruin a car and cause injuries such as broken limbs and whiplash.
- Debris and loose gravel can cause the tires to lose their grip on the road, which can directly cause accidents.
- Improperly painted road markings can lead to drivers not knowing when it is legal to pass other vehicles, or know where the lanes are. Accidents are more likely when it is unclear who has the right of way.
