New Jersey Route 10 Accidents
In New Jersey, more people are injured in traffic accidents than any other type of accident. While most of the accidents are caused by the negligence of drivers, dangerous road conditions can also cause serious highway accidents. Route 10 has existed and has been used since the late 1920s, but this old highway isn’t properly maintained. Dangerous road conditions on Route 10 include potholes, unsigned curves, obstructed traffic signs, improper signage, road construction sites, unevenly paved roads, construction materials, and overgrown trees, among others.
Traffic accidents on New Jersey Route 10 due to adverse road conditions are not completely the fault of motorists and should therefore not be their responsibility. While drivers have the responsibility to exercise caution when driving, accidents due to dangerous conditions are the responsibility of government agencies responsible for maintaining the road, or the responsibility of construction crews, or the agency that hired them.
Motorists often fail to notice road dangers because they don’t expect such hazards to be there. Road dangers commonly go unnoticed by motorists until it’s too late. Motor vehicle accidents can be really serious and deadly, and dangerous road conditions are capable of causing such accidents as they hinder motorists from driving safely.
