Road Workers Die, Some Fear Going Back To Work

April 4th, 2008 by flanews

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.

We had more people report not to come to work since the accidents happened because theyre scared. Theyre scared of dieing, being badly injured. Theyre scared, said William Bachschmidt owner of DAB Constructors.

Only six of the nearly 120 people killed in road zone accidents were road workers.
