What Constitutes Highway Defect or Neglect?
Highway defects or neglect consist of any infrastructural problems on a major road due to a lack of regulatory oversight, failure to keep the road in good condition, or untreated wear and tear. These can include cracks in the pavement, shaky barriers, unsafe pull-off areas, and more. Highway neglect or defects create unsafe driving conditions that lead to more auto accidents.
Unsafe highway conditions are often a result of underfunding, and insufficient allocation of resources. Long term political pressure provides lasting solutions to these issues, but in the process, dangerous highway hazards remain.
