Wet Paint Damages Vehicles In St. Charles
Posted By Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC
Several St. Charles motorists ended up with minor
property damage when they drove down a yellow painted street this week. According to the
City of St. Charles, the street was turned yellow after a contractor re-painted
street stripes right before it rained. The wet yellow paint was smeared
all along the entire stretch of street. Many cars drove on the wet paint
and sustained paint damage to their vehicles. The City of St. Charles
hired Traffic Control Company, to re-paint yellow lines along a stretch
of Elm Street on Tuesday morning. The wet painted was washed away, flowing
down drains, gutters, and stained nearby creeks.
The vice president of Traffic Control Company apologizes for the mistake
and say the company will take full responsibility for the damage. The
company’s spokesperson said a sudden rain shower surprised the skilled
crew and caused the unexpected wet condition. The company will also take
responsibility for damage to any vehicle that drove down the wet yellow
street. Traffic Control Company is asking motorist with damage to please
contact their office and fill out a claim. The vice president of Traffic
Control Company says the water base paint will cause no environmental
hazard, and no additional tax dollars will be spent righting the wrong.
Even minor vehicle damage can cause major frustration, especially when
the at-fault party will not take responsibility. Not all at-fault parties
take full responsibility for their wrongdoing, like the company mentioned
above. Many times victims need the support and representation from St.
