What causes the washboard roads?

Washboard roads usually occur due to lack of moisture and traffic/speed. They're particularly prevalent when weather conditions are dry and frequent rainfall reduces their chances. Hard acceleration or braking can accelerate wash boarding, which is why you'll see it frequently at intersections, before and after sharp curves, and on hills.
