Road hazards can be caused by many things:
- Poor construction efforts
- Lack of proper signage around road hazards that are not removed
- Debris falling from trucks
- Intentional dumping of debris

If they are not and if an accident results, it can be difficult to determine who the liable party is. Is the city or municipality liable for not taking care of the road?
