Many roads are equipped with guardrails in order to keep vehicles from leaving the road in the event of an accident or driver error. It is not uncommon for roads to be constructed around terrain that is hazardous for vehicles, such as sheer drops and large bodies of water. In these situations, guardrails should be installed to ensure the safety of innocent drivers.
