Spent some time driving on the state highways over the last couple of days and noticed a sign before entering construction zones.
Obviously, those areas can be very dangerous for workers and motorists need to pay careful attention when driving through them. It's one of the reasons speed limits in the zones are so much lower. Bright orange signs, lights, traffic cones -- several things are in use to alert drivers to their need to slow and watch closely.
But one sign, I'm not sure of. "Don't hit our workers! Avoid $10,000 fine," it read.
Because not severely injuring or even killing another human being through inattention isn't reason enough?
