Where Should Guard Rails Be?
Traveling on a mountainous road with narrow lanes and long drop-offs is frightening under normal circumstances, but when guardrails are broken or missing, the travelers may be at increased risk of accident. Guard rails are supposed to prevent severe accidents from occurring and to help save lives. Unfortunately, these roads are made less safe due to municipal negligence when guard rails are not where they should be.

Common Places for Guard Rails
Guard rails are designed to prevent cars from traveling into extremely dangerous situations, deflect the force of the car crash, and keep the car from flipping. Certain roads and road conditions have a higher need for guard rails, including:
- Bridges, raised roads, and roads with long drop-offs
- Heavily trafficked roads, especially highways and freeways (These roads typically have guard rails or medians in between opposite-traveling traffic and on both sides of the road.)
- Roads and areas with high pedestrian traffic, such as construction areas
Accidents that occur on these roads have a greater potential to be more severe than roads that are less traveled and have clear roadsides.
