For everyone to be safe on the road, it is vital that all drivers drive in accordance with roadway signs. These signs regulate the activities, behaviors, and expectations of drivers, allowing for safe and orderly driving. Without signs, it’s not only difficult to predict the behavior of other drivers, but also drive in a safe manner yourself. Therefore, when the municipal agency responsible for maintaining roads and appropriate signage on the road fails in their duty, the repercussions can be extensive, causing accidents and injuries to innocent drivers.
If you have been injured in an accident caused by a lack of signage, you should not be responsible for the entirety of your medical or repair bills.

Without stop signs at even one of the junctions, a driver could mistakenly think they had the right of way and cause a serious accident as a result.
Because of the important information signs usually impart, a missing sign can result in:
