Dangerous roads in North Carolina

The North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) Division of Highways has the daunting task of creating, maintaining, and improving North Carolina's highway system, which consists of 79,261 miles of roadway. And it is a tough job to handle, as the number of lane miles of North Carolina's paved highway system has increased by 24 percent in recent years.

While highway maintenance funds have increased, funding has not kept pace with inflation and highway system growth. The annual cost of pavement preservation activities is $283 million and resurfacing is $444 million. NCDOT expects an even faster rise in North Carolina freight traffic. As traffic rises and roadways deteriorate, accidents increase.

The Charlotte auto accident attorneys at Marcari, Russotto, Spencer & Balaban help people who have been injured in automobile accidents on roads in the Charlotte area and throughout North Carolina. Below are some tips that may help you avoid an accident on the North Carolina highways.

Statistically dangerous roads in North Carolina

North Carolina roadways that are considered exceptionally dangerous based on NCDOT accident rates include:

  • Highway 75
  • Highway 77
  • Highway 88
  • Interstate 40's mountainous portions

The reasons for the greater number of accidents on these roads include poor road maintenance, design shortcomings, severe weather, driver errors, and truck traffic hazards.

Conditions that can make every road dangerous

Our Charlotte auto accident lawyers warn that even good roads can have bad accident rates under certain conditions. To avoid an accident, minimize driving or proceed cautiously under these road conditions:

  • Congestion — Overcrowded highways invite driver error and increase accident risks.
  • Slippery roads — Avoid driving when heavy rain or ice and snow limit traction.
  • Road construction — Drive slowly or avoid roads under construction, as many wrecks occur when roads are being repaired.
  • Night driving — While fewer people are driving at night, more accidents occur at night due to reduced visibility and driver fatigue.
  • Closing time — Avoid any highway shortly after the regular closing time of drinking establishments, as more drunk drivers are traveling at that time.
  • No seat belt — Because you are statistically likely to be in a car accident at some point in your life no matter how well you drive, you should at least attempt to reduce the severity of any injuries by always buckling up. This is the purpose behind the state's Click It or Ticket program.

Characteristics of a dangerous road

You do not need a book of statistics to know which roads are the most dangerous. As North Carolina car accident attorneys, we warn you to be extra cautious when you notice these road conditions:

  • Narrow shoulders — These create a reduced margin for error.
  • Narrow lanes — The smaller lanes create a greater chance of lane-drift accidents.
  • Curves and bends — The twists and turns in a road reduce visibility.
  • Blind intersections — Beware of traffic turning onto or off a highway.
  • Road deterioration — Conditions to watch for include potholes, cracks, and uneven lanes.
  • Bridges — Bridges freeze faster than the roadway and often are slicker in the rain.
