How to Prevent Traffic Accidents during Your Roadworks

Road safety is a top priority when construction is being carried out along streets and highways. Rules and regulations have been put in place to prevent accidents on and off the construction sites. However, there are little slip-ups that can lead to bigger problems when left unchecked.

Ensuring People’s Safety during Roadworks

When a street or a portion of the highway is being repaired, it will seldom be closed down. This is because to do so would cause disruptions to daily life which can, in turn, affect business operations. In order to avoid this problem, construction workers place temporary barriers around the roadwork area and set up a portable traffic light or multiple message signage to warn motorists and pedestrians of the proper safety precautions to be observed.

These signs preceding the construction site are able to communicate road conditions to not only protect motorists and pedestrians but construction workers as well. Having said that, there are some roadwork signs that have deteriorated in quality over time. It could be that they have become too dirty or the words have faded to the point of being incomprehensible, or even, it could be they have not been placed well. Any of these situations compromise the efficacy of safety signs.

This is because minor damage to these signs can lead to accidents that range from over speeding in a high-risk zone to vehicle collisions between a motorist and the site. While the overall number of road-related deaths in 2018 fell by 4 per cent, the number of driver and pedestrian deaths is still higher than that of the previous year. Although the number has significantly lowered for work-related fatalities in construction, these numbers can still be lowered with the right equipment.
