ROAD CONSTRUCTION: WHY WE SLOW DOWN TO ENJOY IT

Everyone loves road construction. That’s why we see Canadians slowing down across the country every year to enjoy the sights. What we often don’t consider, though, are the people working hard in the heat.road workers repair the road,  cones in  foreground

Because road construction is so much fun, we forget that there are people working out there. The point of this blog is not to provide safety tips for people working on or near road construction, but to remind the drivers out there that members of the Chandos family are conducting work on or around roadways.

We all slow down to enjoy road construction because people’s lives matter more than our anticipated time of arrival.

Reduced Speed signs are important to recognize and obey for the following reasons:
1. Unexpected vehicles move out onto roadways from construction zones
2. Workers are present on or near roadways.
3. Speed fines double.

Before you take off for the next long weekend, consult the highway maps for your area.
