Driving errors such as speeding, distracted driving and drunk driving are among the leading causes of auto accidents. However, dangerous road conditions also play a significant factor in contributing to an auto, motorcycle, or pedestrian accident. While these dangerous road conditions may be the result of natural causes, they can also make driving unsafe.
According to the report, California Transportation By the Numbers, “60% of major locally and state-maintained roads and highways in the Los Angeles- Long Beach – Santa Ana region were found to be in ‘poor’ condition, compared with 37% statewide.” The report comes as no surprise as many of these roads are among the most heavily traveled ones in the country.
Unsafe road conditions such as cracks and potholes can cause a driver to lose control of their vehicle, potentially leading to a crash. Other attributing factors include:
- Faded paint markings that are invisible from the driver’s seat;
- Poorly designed quad rails on curves and overpasses;
- Scarce traffic control in construction zones;
- Improper placement of construction materials and poles that can obstruct a driver’s vision
