Guard Rail Locations
Driving can be dangerous in any place or circumstance but, some roads present a greater danger because of their location or the amount of traffic that travels the road. Mountainous roads, roads that border ditches or long drop-offs, and highly trafficked roads present greater risks, especially if there is not a guard rail present to protect you and your loved ones in the case of an accident.
If a lack of guard rails caused you or someone you know to have an auto accident or increased the severity of an accident, you may be able to sue for financial compensation due to municipal negligence.

Typical Places for Guard Rails
Guard rails are typically in place to mitigate the effects of a car accident by preventing you from running off the road, colliding with another car or object head on and absorbing and transferring the force with which your car hits. Guard rails are placed in areas where these types of auto accidents are more likely to occur, including:
- Major highways, freeways and interstates, both in between opposite traffic and the sides of the roads
- Bridges and elevated roadways
- Construction areas
- Roads with drop offs on the sides
The ramifications of not having guard rails in these locations can be expensive, life-changing and potentially lethal.
Being involved in any car accident can be traumatic. Being involved in an accident due to unsafe road conditions, such as missing guard rails, and negligence on someone else’s part can be even more devastating.
