Roadway and Signage Hazards
Video: Car Accidents Caused by Defective Roads
Technological and engineering advancements have made automobiles safer than ever before. But, what about the roads on which vehicles travel? How safe are American highways? Not very, according to the D+ grade given to U.S. highway infrastructure in a recent report card.
Every day, motorists unknowingly encounter a range of hazards that put them at serious risk of harm. A few of the issues plaguing U.S. roadways include:
