However, they entail dangers and hazards for those driving through them such as changes in traffic patterns, narrowed rights-of-way, navigating around barrels, heavy equipment and trucks, flaggers and more. Work zone safety is paramount for those doing the building, repairing and maintenance because there are just as many hazards and dangers to be aware of that can lead to personal injuries.
