What is Poor Road Design and How Does it Lead to Car Crashes in Hollywood and Other Florida Cities?

Poor road designs can include many flaws:

  • Poor drainage, leading to head the water on the road
  • Poor signage or inadequate lines on the road to indicate different lanes
  • Visibility obstructions
  • Lanes that are too narrow
  • Tight turns
  • Lack of adequate space for pedestrians, leading to pedestrian accidents in Hollywood and other cities
  • Incorrect speed or type of road for the traffic
  • Lack of traffic lights or signs where they are needed
  • Incorrect material for the heaviness of the traffic expected

In many cases, it can be difficult to tell whether a poor road design has contributed to your accident. In most cases, people focus on the at-fault driver as entirely to blame for an accident. However, in many cases road design does play a role. After all, why do some intersections and roads in every community have a higher rate of accidents than others? In some cases, it is because certain roads are busier. However, in some cases road design flaws contribute to the problem.

Why Does Poor Road Design Occur?

Poor road design can occur for a number of reasons:

  • Negligence on the part of the government responsible for the roadway
  • Undertrained roadworkers or engineers
  • Roads that have not been correctly maintained
  • Poor design ideas
  • Roads that have not been upgraded as traffic and other conditions have changed
