Common Defects in the Road

When making use of the public road system, it is important you take measures to keep yourself and others on the road safe. This is done by abiding by traffic laws and road regulations. However, there is often little you can do to protect yourself when suddenly faced with a serious road defect. When public roads are not properly maintained it is possible for innocent drivers and passengers to suffer severe injuries and property damage.

Potential Roadway Defects

When public roads are not properly maintained it is possible they will suffer from defects. Some of the most commonly occurring roadway defects include the following:

  • Faulty signage
  • Improperly stored and maintained construction equipment
  • Missing and damaged guardrails
  • Unevenly set pavement
  • Missing signs, warnings and street markings
  • Potholes

These defects create hazardous road conditions. Even the most careful driver can fall victim to a road defect. From blown out tires to broken axles, these defects can lead to serious property damage. Furthermore, many of these roadway defects can cause a driver to lose control of the vehicle, possibly resulting in tragic injuries and even death.
