Many accidents over the years in Roane County have been caused by motor vehicle drivers navigating curves. Many drivers misjudge the risks associated with approaching curves. There are two primary dangers to consider when navigating curves. First, there is a risk of losing control of your vehicle as a result of driving too fast or inattentively while turning a curve. There is also a risk of colliding with another vehicle while navigating a dangerous curve on a two-lane/two-way road. Poor weather like rain can greatly increase the risk of car crashes.
