Even though construction workers warn
you of their presence by using orange barrels, signs, equipment,
helmits, and jackets. It doesn't prevent them from being
injured or killed by driver's driving too fast or not paying
attention. Their life is in your hands when you pass them
in a construction zone.
Construction signs are your best
indicator for conditions ahead such as closed lanes, flagmen,
detours and poor conditions. Sometimes barrels directing
traffic around lane closures get hit, moved or blown over.
It is extremely important to stay in the correct lane to
avoid colliding with workers.
