Construction Workers (Continued)
are regulary moved along highways for maintenance, inspection
and surveying. If you see these vehicles, as well as emergency
or disabled vehicles, be prepared to slow or stop for them.
Many times there are people on foot nearby. In this case
the construction worker was facing away from traffic on
the roadway shoulder when he was collided by SUV. The vehicle
either drifted or was forced off the roadway. Most workers
work behind barriers or along closed lanes where they are
more protected from incidence like this one.
