When roads are properly maintained and the vehicle in a driver’s control functions correctly, there is little reason for a single-vehicle accident to occur. However, when objects are left in the roadway, motorists may suddenly lose control of their vehicle or be unable to avoid a collision. Debris on roads with high speed limits is especially dangerous because drivers have even less time to react, thereby increasing the likelihood of an accident that might produce severe injuries. Municipalities and construction crews are responsible for keeping the roads clear of these obstacles and may be held accountable for the failure to do so.
