ROAD & TRAFFIC SIGNAL DEFECTS
Although roadway design has improved significantly over the past century, errors in design and construction still exist and often contribute to motor vehicle, bicycle and pedestrian accidents. Federal and state transportation guidelines stress the importance of design that is both safe for road users. Safe design requires that road users have sufficient time to see, process and react to signal information. Local municipalities and state agencies are responsible for maintaining and controlling the public roadways in their jurisdiction and have a legal responsibility for dangerous or defective conditions that may exist on the roadways.
