Following the Signs
When a driver is unfamiliar with the terrain, traffic patterns, or other roadway conditions in a particular area, he or she is largely dependent upon posted signs to guide the driving decisions that will be made. The absence of a sign where one should be regarded as either necessary or appropriate can dramatically elevate the likelihood of an automobile accident. Also, the failure to observe the signs that are posted can directly contribute to or cause a car wreck. Typically a driver will be cited by police for not heeding warnings, limitations, or other roadway admonitions in the event of an accident.
Beyond that, however, you may be entitled to pursue a civil lawsuit against a negligent driver if his or her failure to drive safely has resulted in your physical injury or damage to your vehicle.

Common Breaches and Dangers
It is ironic that drivers would ever fail to observe the instructions on traffic signs because a “STOP” sign is often among the first roadway fixtures with which a child becomes familiar. The shape, color, and word on the sign are each used as teaching tools. So there is no excuse for not acting in accordance with the signed guidance. Ignoring the following signs may cause an accident:
- Stop signs (failing to come to a complete stop, or not decelerating at all)
- Yield signs
- One-Way street signs
- Do Not Enter or Wrong Way signs
You would not have had to endure the pain and hassle incurred by your car accident had the other driver simply followed the signs. Contact the Racine car accident lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ®, at 800-242-2874.
