Construction Zone Accidents
Construction zones are high risk areas filled with heavy machinery, flashing lights, and moving workers. Yet, many drivers speed through with little or no regard for the safety of the workers. Likewise, there are frequently inadequate, insufficient temporary traffic control devices set up to provide protection for the workers within the work zone or to assist in the safe flow of traffic and prevent vehicles from entering into dangerous areas.
Work zone accidents are a common occurrences that make up more than 12 percent of all accidents that occur on America’s highways and bi-ways. Often, the individuals who are injured or killed in these accidents are not the workers themselves—but the motorists. This is because motorists generally travel in small and light vehicles compared to the extremely massive and heavy work zone equipment. When smaller passenger vehicles come into contact with much larger and heavier equipment, the results are often catastrophic.
