Highway defects are responsible for thousands of auto accidents every year in the United States, many of which could have been prevented through responsible municipal action. Because local municipalities are responsible for maintaining the quality of roadways and highways in an effort to protect the safety of all drivers, they are responsible for ensuring that pavement does not become dangerously uneven.
