Dangers of Uneven Pavement
Uneven pavement can be caused by a multitude of road conditions, including normal wear and tear, but when construction is not completed to repair the road, dangerous car accidents might occur, sometimes leading to serious injury or even death. One of the main dangers of uneven pavement is that it is sometimes difficult to see, particularly at night, and drivers may encounter dangerous uneven pavement unaware. Uneven pavement may result in:
- A vehicle’s tires may rupture due to the violent collision with the lower road surface
- Contact with between the side of a tire and higher pavement can cause a driver to lose control
- The force and shock of the sudden drop may cause vehicle damage and could also cause a motorist to lose control of his or her vehicle
