An accident waiting to happen.

'An accident waiting to happen' is how you describe a situation that is dangerous and could cause an accident. Everyone knows it's a dangerous situation, but usually no one does anything to fix it until an accident has already happened.

-They really need to get a lock on this pool gate. It's an accident waiting to happen!
-You're so right! I'll go tell the pool managers.
