Dangerous Road Debris
Foreign objects often litter roads and highways. While many of these objects are usually harmless, some may seriously damage automobiles. Worse yet, some may cause drivers to lose control of their vehicles and lead to accidents.
In some cases, excessive road debris is considered a road defect.

Knowing What to Avoid
In many cases, avoiding road debris is relatively easy because many objects look as though they might damage your automobile. Common objects that litter roads and should always be avoided include:
- Trash bags
While it may seem harmless to run over some smaller objects, it is often difficult to tell what these objects are made of. In other cases, it is simply impossible to avoid roadway debris. Depending on the material a particular object is made of, it may present a hazard to your automobile. Potential damage includes:
- Tire blowouts
- Engine stalls
- Broken windows
In some cases, running over road debris can cause drivers to lose control of their vehicles. Drivers may run off the road or crash into other drivers, causing serious injuries in the process.
In many cases, local governments are responsible for keeping roads free from debris so that they provide safe driving conditions.
