One of the many ways taxpayer money is used is to make sure our roads are designed and built properly and that they receive regular upkeep in order to keep them safe for daily use. Usually, the responsibility for this belongs to municipal authorities. Part of this responsibility requires municipalities to monitor road conditions and address any problems which occur. Sadly, if a municipality is negligent in performing this duty, it can result in safety hazards that may cause serious car accidents.
