Why Roads are bent inwards on curves

The roads are bent inwards on the curves and at the turns because the bents avoid falling
outside and prevent the accidents.
When an object turns in a circle it is influenced by a centrifugal force which pushes it away
from the centre of the circle. When vehicles turn on a road they fall outside under the
influence of centrifugal force. In this way there is danger of falling or slipping out of road at a
turn. Roads are made in a way that these bent inward at the turns to avoid falling outside and
to prevent accidents.
