How police can set up a safe work zone at roadway incidents
No roadside work site is ever truly safe, due to the number of distracted, impaired and/or incompetent drivers on the road. Officers can help reduce risks through proper procedures, constant situational awareness and having an escape route ready if things go south. As soon as an officer has stopped for a roadway incident – be it a vehicle check or traffic accident – they need to visually assess the scene in all directions before doing anything else.
