Toledo, OH (PRWEB) April 03, 2013
As 13 ABC News reported on Monday, construction season has arrived which means that there will be orange barrels along the roadways and an increased need to drive defensively.
Currently in Toledo you will see orange barrels lining Central and Secor making it difficult to get in and out of certain businesses and to travel along the road altogether. Drivers must remember that the construction is necessary in maintaining the area's roadways, and it is important to remain patient when their commute is delayed.
Attorney Charles Boyk recommends leaving five minutes early in the morning on your way to school or work, decreasing the sense of urgency and frustration you might experience when getting caught up in a delay. There are still other construction projects that ODOT will release the details of later this week, explained 13 ABC News.
Attorney Boyk recommends eliminating as many distractions as possible when driving through areas of construction. “The lane markings can change daily, so don’t feel as though you know the roadway restrictions. Drive with awareness and be defensive. While the goal of construction is to help the roadways, there have been numerous accidents that have resulted from it, so be careful!”
To check for future construction projects in your area, check the ODOT website and pay attention to daily traffic reports from local news stations.
