When driving, every driver knows to slow down for turns or road conditions such as speed bumps. However, while turns and speed bumps are easy to see and usually have signs dedicated to warning drivers of their presence, a driver has less chance to prepare, and thus safely react, to uneven pavement, an inherently defective surface unsuitable to drive on. This unsuitable driving surface leaves drivers exposed to the possibility of being involved in an accident or damaging their car.
