Construction Zones Are Dangerous Driving Zones

Construction projects on Interstate 240 and other Tennessee highways are a necessary annoyance for many motorists. Unfortunately, these projects have also been the scene of numerous traffic accidents, some of which have resulted in life-threatening injuries.

The speed limit in construction zones is often reduced, but careless drivers do not heed these safety measures. When a driver blows through a 45 mph construction zone at 65 mph, he or she is putting lives at risk.

Distracted driving is also a source of danger in construction zones. Traffic slows when entering a construction zone. A driver who is not paying attention can wind up rear-ending the vehicle in front, causing life-changing injuries.
