IMPORTANCE OF TRAFFIC SAFETY DURING ROAD CONSTRUCTION SEASON
Road markings are important for safety on all kinds of roads, from tiny country roads to vast highways for many reasons. One of the main reasons is probably that they give instant instructions to motorists; highly visible white and yellow lines separate traffic to keep drivers safely on the correct side of the road. They also indicate areas where other lines of traffic merge into main roads, and can be used to indicate speed restrictions, mark out specific lanes and to warn drivers of hazards. Some road markings warn drivers of crosswalks and pedestrian access, etc.
In the next few weeks as the weather gets warmer and spring turns into summer, it is likely that there will be an increase in the amount of road and civil construction projects. With road closures, detours, or even just a slight re-route of traffic through these projects, it is important that clear signage, road markings, and delineation is used to ensure the safety of all traffic on the road.
Companies that are responsible for the set up of the above safety requirements often may have a tight time schedule to make changes to the flow of traffic as the projects change and progress daily. This means that the products that are being used need to be easy to maneuver and easy to handle. Acure Safety’s 42″ T-Top Delineator Posts are just that.
