Road signs are critical to the flow of traffic and ensuring that drivers are operating their vehicles safely and in a manner that will not endanger others on the road. Thus, when these signs are not there or are damaged beyond recognition, serious car accidents can occur, causing innocent drivers to be unduly harmed.
