What Are Some Common Reasons For Construction Zone Car Accidents in Washington?
Roadways undergoing construction are marked with bright orange signs for a reason. Not only are there more people on the highway, the area itself is dangerous, full of giant holes and heavy equipment that can cause terrible damage in an accident. Sadly, despite the signs and potential danger, many drivers choose to ignore the glaring warnings. Some of the common ways people get hurt in construction zone accidents include:
- People texting instead of paying attention to what is ahead.
- Speeding through the zone, hoping to avoid a red light, sign-man or any other warning that may slow them down.
- Passing slower traffic along sections of the road that have been roped or coned off.
- Not paying attention and failing to recognize the warning signs in time.
