- Problems with street signs
- Sewer inlets and flooding
- Road obstructions such as dead animals
- Hazards caused by harsh weather conditions such as snow buildup and ice
This effort by the police department is only a step in the large picture. Other common causes of auto accidents include:
- Human error, negligence
