Missing Road Paint

Missing Road Paint

A motorist may need to use traffic paint signs and lines to safely navigate unknown roads. If this paint is missing, a driver may not have sufficient information to facilitate safe travel. A local or state government agency is typically responsible for providing this basic service. When these parties fail to adequately fulfill their obligations, motorists can become confused and may be more likely to become involved in dangerous accidents.

If you have been harmed in a motor vehicle accident that was caused by the absence of necessary road paint, you may be able to pursue financial compensation through a civil lawsuit.

Road paint is a vital type of sign attached to the surface of the road instead of being posted on the side. This paint often provides information for a motorist that may not be easily communicated through signs. However, there are some instances when the paint on the road may echo the warning offered by a nearby sign. The following problems can occur when a transportation agency does not properly paint a road:

  • Lack of lane information and placement
  • Lack of lane passing information
  • Lack of emergency entry and exit zones marked off
  • Lack of railroad crossing warnings

The presence of lines indicating the boundaries of lanes is something easily taken for granted by motorists, but it is of such fundamental importance that it absolutely cannot be overlooked by the municipal agency charged with road maintenance.
