hi
Non routable addresses are those addresses which are not routed by internet routers but by local routers using an address in its range.The traffic is routed from connected PC to internet via an address using local router. Local routers can be easily available from local computer shops that are default assigned to 192.168.0. or 192.168.1.

               Many address space are assigned by Internet Assigned numbers authority (IANA) as non routable 10.0.0.0-10.255.255.255(16,777,216 addresses),172.16.0.0-172.31.255.255(1,048,576), and 192.168.0.0 – 192.168.255.255(65,536).The most common use of these address are in residential networks where they have to provide internet connection to multiple hosts.And many address spaces are reserved for further use in future.

That are not routed by the system it mean that they have a special path over the network to access the network. It is the kind of network that uses no traffic to route on a specific device. Such as a device that is not forwarding the packets to a LAN but to  WAN. Most of these networks do not route data. Such a example is a telephone network company which uses other networks to connect with each device.

There are some security risk in each network and risk is every where in life. But it is like a simple network that performs simple tasks and are no two complicated.
