What Are Road Hazards?

Road hazards are usually defined as a condition on a public road or street that should not be present there, such as:

  • Potholes
  • Broken glass
  • Debris
  • Nails and other sharp objects
  • Railway ties
  • Large branches
  • Animals

Any type of road hazard can cause a driver to lose control of his or her vehicle and crash – into another vehicle, a ditch, a roadside object such as a tree, utility pole or building, or a pedestrian. Severe personal injuries, fatalities and extensive property damage may be the consequences.

Potholes Are Not Simply an Irritation

Driving over a pothole is not simply an annoyance; it can be dangerous. Tens of thousands of cities in America admit that they have inadequate funding for keeping their roads free of potholes. Freeways may also be in poor condition. The infrastructure of roads and bridges in America is a frequent topic of controversy, and government inaction does not help an individual or family who has suffered from a road-hazard car crash.

When a pothole causes more than just vehicle damage, it is often the city’s legal responsibility to compensate the victims for their injuries.

Deer, Livestock, Pets on the Road

Other types of debris can also cause a driver to lose control. The presence of deer, livestock, and pets on roads and streets is especially dangerous. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), each year more than 200,000 road-hazard car crashes are the result of a vehicle hitting an animal. About 200 people are killed in crashes involving animals on the road every year.
