Defective Street Lights
Even though automobiles have headlights to light up the road for drivers to see at night, many times it is not enough. Thus, municipalities may install street lights in order to increase visibility for drivers so they can drive safely at night. However, if these lights are not working properly, it can increase the driver’s risk of an accident, putting him or her in harm’s way.

Faulty Street Light Hazards
When working properly, street lights brighten up the road, providing drivers with a safer environment in which to travel. In fact, street lamps are often placed in busy intersections or other high-traffic areas where it is highly important to see the surrounding environment. Cities are responsible for installing and performing any maintenance on street lights, but when they fail in these duties, they put drivers at risk of injury. Street lights help drivers see hazards in the road such as:
- Other motorists on the road
- Motorists pulled over on the shoulder
- Any debris or obstacles
- Construction areas or road defects
- Sharp turns
If a driver is involved in an accident with any of the above, it could cause serious damage to the vehicle as well as devastating injuries for anyone involved.
