Construction Zone Safety Must Be a Priority

Motorists traveling through a construction zone are not directly responsible for ensuring that the area is safe before they continue. The priority of safety, both for drivers and construction workers, falls upon several parties.

Depending on the situation, one or more of these parties could be liable for your injuries:

  • Construction site management
  • Contractors or maintenance crews
  • Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA)
  • United States Department of Transportation

Traffic must be safely organized around construction sites to prevent accidents. Part of the construction project should include ample time to plan how to redirect traffic or manage intersections so that a motorist is never put near a danger zone or large piece of machinery. Foremen, supervisors, and construction company executives must take this responsibility just as seriously as protecting their own workers for workplace accidents.
