If the highway department engages in proper maintenance, Missouri’s roads should offer drivers safe passage. Unfortunately, the road itself often presents drivers with hazards, such as:
- Edge drop off (edge of the road too high)
- Faulty guardrails
- Obstructed views
- Improper road design
- Missing signs
- Poorly marked construction zones
