WORK ZONE CRASHES
Work zone crashes are on the rise in the US.
Since 2013, there has been a 30% increase in work zone related fatalities.
Based on an estimate released by the National Automotive Sampling General Estimates System, around 95,000 work zone crashes occurred in 2017 alone.
Every time a road has to be repaired, the chance for accidents increases exponentially, putting both the workers and the public at risk.
Less repeated construction on the same roads means less time construction crews spend in potentially hazardous situations and fewer chances of a fatal car accident.
It’s #NationalSafetyMonth and Pacific Geosource is dedicated to constructing stronger, longer-lasting pavements that not only save owners money in the long run, but also prevent potentially dangerous road conditions from being under constant repair.
