Road Workers Die, Some Fear Going Back To Work

In 2006, about 120 Floridians died in wrecks in construction zones on Floridas roads. A traffic cone for every person who died in road work zones that year was set in front of the Capitol Friday, to recognize Work Zone Safety Week. A father and son were killed last week while working on a road in Wildwood. The boss of the two men who were killed said his crew is still pretty shaken up.
