Pickens Construction has shared some useful safety tips for drivers and travelers using roads under construction. The company has advised drivers to keep to the proper lane, to comply with indicated speed limits, to obey traffic rules, and to drive carefully and patiently in road construction sites.

Anderson, SC -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/08/2018 -- Pickens Construction has posted some important safety guidelines for road construction sites on its website. Lamenting the many serious accidents that occur in road construction sites, the company has advised drivers to be more vigilant and careful when driving on a road under construction. Drivers should also follow the speed and lane instructions offered by the road construction workers.

According to Pickens Construction, patience and obedience can help reduce the many accidents that occur in road construction zones. In a recently published blog on the company's website, Pickens Construction has noted the high prevalence of motor accidents in road construction sites. As such, the asphalt paving company has shared five important safety tips for preventing accidents in these dangerous zones. According to Pickens Construction, most accidents in road construction sites are caused by negligence and careless driving. One way of preventing accidents in road construction sites is by driving carefully and within the indicated speed limit. Drivers should also keep to the proper lane to avoid colliding with other drivers and harming the road construction workers.

Pickens Construction acknowledges the importance of road construction signs in preventing road accidents. The company advises all road users to use the route or lane indicated by the orange cones, barriers, and by the flaggers and other construction workers. Drivers should never ignore these signs because they indicate the designated lane or route as the road undergoes repairs or construction. Another basic but very important tip for preventing accidents in road construction sites is obedience or compliance with regular traffic rules. Drivers should be attentive and avoid unnecessary distractions like cell phones. They should also avoid overlapping other vehicles or using the shoulder in line with ordinary traffic rules. And last but not least, all drivers should drive carefully and patiently in a road construction site.
