Tamarac Poor Road Design
An important part of traffic safety is correctly maintained and designed roads. Engineers are expected to design roads that will move traffic safely and efficiently through intersections and along roadways. Engineers are also expected to design roadways that remove some of the dangers of a specific geography. This may mean leveling steep slopes or smoothing out uneven surfaces before paving a roadway.
When municipalities and construction companies are negligent in designing and maintaining roads, car accidents in Tamarac and Florida can and do happen.
