Critical Traffic Signs
Traffic signs are posted by municipal authorities and are essential for maintaining roadway safety. Unfortunately, many drivers and pedestrians are injured in dangerous accidents that occur when municipal authorities fail to post or maintain important roadway signs. These victims of municipal negligence may be able to sue for financial compensation to address medical bills, vehicle repairs, and other damages incurred in the crash.

It can be argued that every traffic sign is important for maintaining roadway safety. After all, signs are posted for a reason, and that is to regulate the safe flow of traffic or communicate vital information to motorists. However, there are some particular signs which when absent make accidents inevitable that would otherwise not have occurred. The following are some of these signs:
- Stop signs
- Yield signs
- Do Not Enter signs
- Railroad crossing signs
- One Way Street signs
- Signs warning of steep grades or winding roads
It is obvious that the absence of any of these signs would make it likely that a collision might occur, but it also bears noting that the severity of these crashes is typically greater because neither motorist has any reason to suspect that a crash is imminent.
Do not hesitate to seek legal counsel if you have been hurt in a car accident that was facilitated by a municipal authority’s improper installation, maintenance, or replacement of traffic signs. Contact the Appleton car accident lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. at 800-242-2874 today.
