These conditions can make it difficult for drivers to navigate roadways successfully and can lead to serious, catastrophic and sometimes fatal injuries for drivers, passengers, pedestrians and other bystanders.

Accidents Caused by Dangerous Roadways in New York
There are many conditions that can cause a roadway to be dangerous for drivers and passengers. Roadways must be properly marked so that drivers can stay in the proper lanes and navigate the roadways successfully. Barriers and guardings must be installed in necessary spots, such as on bridges or around sharp corners, to help prevent injuries. Roadways need to be free of debris and obstructions. Debris may come from the beds of trucks, including trucks that are leaving and entering construction zones without proper tarps and covers.
Construction zones pose additional risks for drivers and for construction workers. These zones require drivers to decrease their speeds and take additional precautions. Like other areas of potential danger, these zones need to be properly marked and have necessary barriers.
Likewise, drivers have a responsibility to follow the signs and markers in a construction zone and to obey all speed limits and other restrictions. When an accident occurs as the result of negligence on behalf of the construction company or the driver, the negligent party should be held accountable for any injuries and damage that result.
