In the South, road work doesn’t just happen in the summer. Since Kentucky rarely sees snow or extreme cold, we’re able to work on our roadways almost year-round. Work zones are dangerous for workers because there usually aren’t hard barriers protecting them. This makes workers more vulnerable in the event of a car accident because there’s nothing between them and reckless drivers.
But work zones aren’t just dangerous for workers. Drivers are just as much at risk to be injured in a car accident in a work zone. Whether you’re a local or just visiting Lexington, you should know the laws and precautions to take when driving through Kentucky work zones.
