The purpose of the study is to identify the key problems of legal regulation of control over the state of roads, the development of theoretical and applied proposals for adjusting the relevant norms. Methods of logical-structural analysis, descriptive analysis, and formal-legal method of cognition were used. As a result of the study, it was found that the existing legal norms es? tablish the obligation to carry out activities that correspond to the concept of control in law, although the term control itself is not directly used. It is shown that a significant problem is a large number of ownerless roads. This creates a risk of violation of the rights of road users. An analysis of judicial practice has shown that municipalities are responsible for cadastral registration and registration of ownership of ownerless roads. But the implementation of these decisions is difficult due to the deficit of most local budgets. Therefore, it is advisable to provide subsidies for the design of infrastructure facilities, as well as to use cheaper modern digital inventory and accounting technologies.
