Picking up from Road Hazards: How Dangerous Roads Can Cause Car Accidents (Part 1), the following continues the discussion regarding when dangerous roadway conditions cause or intensify motor vehicle accidents. While the first part of this blog was focused on pointing out the specific parties that may be to blame when road hazards cause car accidents, here in Part 2, we will discuss some of the specific types of road hazards that can endanger drivers by increasing their risk of getting into accidents.

Types of Road Hazards

Some of the most common types of road hazards that create dangerous roadways and, in turn, put drivers at risk of getting into motor vehicle accidents include (but are not limited to):

  • Animals, debris or other objects being left in the road (including debris from other car accidents)
  • Construction equipment and/or construction debris trickling into the roadway
  • Lack of sufficient blockades, cones, etc. to mark and divide construction areas on roadways
  • Potholes, uncovered manholes and unevenly paved roadways
  • Lack of signage, working intersection signals and/or overhead lighting at night
  • Obscured signage (such as in the case when tree overgrowth limits drivers’ ability to see essential signage)
  • Poorly marked lanes and/or a lack of reflectors to point out lane divisions at night
  • Lack of guardrails, especially on elevated, curved roadways
  • Lack of signals at busy intersections.
