Drivers already have to contend with a number of hazards and dangers on the road, such as other, reckless drivers; they should not have to worry about roadway defects or highway obstructions, like objects in the roadway. Unfortunately, many innocent drivers are injured in car accidents every year because random or foreign objects block roadways. Sadly, many of these accidents could easily have been prevented if the municipal agency responsible for taking care of the road had removed the objects in a timely manner.
When a municipal body fails in their duty to keep a road hazard-free, they should be held accountable for the ensuing repercussions, including the costs of an accident.
