Accidents happen. We all know that – but the truth is road hazards, like potholes, uneven pavement, and crumbling shoulders can cause the even most careful driver to veer off the road and lose control.
Our San Diego roads are not perfect. Sure, state and local agencies do their best to maintain the sand, tar, and gravel but the fact is roads are put under intense pressure by vehicles and mother nature. Over time, untended to roads fall apart. Decomposition occurs. Markings fade away.
Roads signs, believe it or not, can also become a hazard on the roads. While they are an important part of safe driving, they are just like roads and prone to fading, warping, and general disrepair. A fallen road sign leaves nearby drivers in a very dangerous situation, as drivers become blind to the important safety information those signs are meant to give. Road signs are also targets of thieves and vandals.
