This is why the NWS preparedness message for flash flooding is "Turn Around, Don't Drown." It is NEVER safe to drive or walk through flood waters.
We use truck mounted attenuators (TMAs) as a safety precaution when a crew is out working in the roadway. They signal to traffic that workers are present and to slow down & move over. When struck, TMAs absorb the impact of a crash and reduce the damage to vehicles and motorists.
You should always keep your eyes on the road, but especially in work zones. Be aware of all signage in work zones that can indicate reduced speeds, lane changes and other important info, and avoid distractions. More work zone safety tips here: https://t.co/aBQILlyrO3
