While the warm months are the typical time major construction sites on the roadways begin, it is possible to have work continue throughout the year at these sites. Because of this, motorists in Ohio frequently travel by these work sites on a daily basis throughout the year. Although this feels commonplace, motorists can forget to reduce their speeds, take notice of signs indicating lane changes or even notice a construction worker near their lane of traffic. Failure to take extra caution at a construction road site could result in a motorist causing a serious construction worker accident.
