Is A City Liable For An Accident In A Dangerous Intersection?

When a driver gets behind the wheel of a car it is normal to expect some inherent dangers. There is no way to safeguard against unpredictable vehicle problems or the behavior of other drivers and pedestrians. Drivers expect the roadways to be safely designed and properly maintained by the local government, but more often than expected roadways present serious dangers. Intersections, in particular, tend to present a range of dangers such as a lack of traffic lights, uneven or unmarked pavement, sharp curves, improper drainage, insufficient signage, complex design, overgrown or ill-placed foliage, and obscure signs.
