Road Hazards

Helping Citizens Avoid Road Hazards

All car accidents are tragic and can lead to serious injuries or death. While driving, almost everything seems to be a potential danger. The roads, parking lots, alleys, and driveways can lead to dangerous situations that are beyond your control. This is considered a road hazard; anything a driver must be cautious of, or anything that poses a potential threat while driving.

What Are Common Road Hazards?

There are many road hazards you must be aware of, but the most common include:

  • Road damage- This can include uneven lanes, potholes or construction. This can cause damage to your car, and can lead to accidents involving one or more cars. It is important to pay attention to signs indicating uneven lanes, construction speed limit changes, or any other indicators.
  • Pedestrians- People become a hazard on the road if they fail to use crosswalks. If a person is using the cross walk correctly, they should not have to stop for a car. The pedestrian has the right-of-way and it is important to watch out for people walking, running or biking. Also, it is vital to watch out for children. Drivers should use extreme caution when driving through a neighborhood where kids are at play.
  • Debris- This can be any loose objects in the streets including, tree branches, tires, boxes or anything else that might have fallen off another car.

What to Watch For on the Road

  • Drivers in a hurry
  • Slow drivers
  • Confused drivers
  • Shoppers
  • Accidents
  • Broken down vehicles
  • Distractions
  • Off ramps/on ramps
  • Foreign objects

  • Many others

It is important to be mindful of your surroundings. There are people, places, and objects surrounding you at all times. If you or someone you know has been a victim of an injury due to a road hazard, call 303-932-8666 to make an appointment with our team of experienced lawyers.
