Road Defects That Lead to Wrong-Way Auto Collisions

Not all wrong-way accidents are caused by drivers. In some cases, a perfectly sober person who is driving carefully can drive the wrong way on a highway exit or entrance ramp because of road defects. Some of these problems that lead to wrong-way accidents include:

  • Poorly marked ramps
  • Improper ramp design
  • Insufficient signs or missing signs
  • Poor lighting
  • Heavy foliage

When a road defect is the cause of a wreck, the case can be complex because the negligent party could be a municipality or other government agency.
