Everyone knows that driving is inherently dangerous, but we count on our roads being as safe as they can possibly be. There are more accidents that happen due to faulty roads than we may have once thought. Florida is actually home to one of the 5 deadliest roads in America. On 1-95, just in Florida, there have been over 750 fatalities from 2004 to 2008, which topped the charts at number one. I-75 and I-10 were also on this list, with over 800 fatalities in Florida in 4 years as well. This is very high for a state where roads should be taken care of with tax payers’ dollars.
There are many different issues which could cause road fatalities due to poor road conditions. Uneven or broken paving, guardrails which are missing, poor lighting, poor drainage, or missing signs could all be reasons why a fatal accident may occur on a road. These are issue that should have been taken care of. There is no way to bring back someone after a horrible accident, but there are ways in which family members can be compensated for this negligence.
