I second this plea....Far too many drivers ignore the roadwork signs and just breeze right on thru. I see it all the time.Performing maintenance along the roadside is hazardous at best, even when the traffic is moving slowly. If I ever took someone's life thru carelessness it would always be on my conscience. Think about it please...and slow down. My heart breaks for the family of this man who was killed.

I WISH TRAFFIC WOULD WATCH OUT FOR OUR MEN improving the roads and landscaping....IT NEVER pays to be in a hurry I worry sick about my husband who edges the medians He worked beside Nicolas. Speeders dont have time to think about the hurt that is involved when one gets hit. PPL need to slow down This man was loved and has children left behind.

i understand what you are saying but its not the girls fault.it was the fault of the company he was working for they would have had things out there that the state makes them have it would have never happen but because a rich person wanted more money in his pocket they were out there with none of the stuff the state requires for what to save 50 dollars.so you need to point fingers where they need to be pointed not at the driver but at the person who owns the bussiness.if it was me i would go after him the state of florida for all i could get the same with the girl driving she should also go after the bussiness and the state for allowing the company to run with out what there reqired to have out there.also if he was working over time and not being paid for it like you said before i dont know who deleated the post maybe the company.this would have never happen if the company would have ran things leagel like they were required to do.go after them and if this guy is working these people over 40 hours and not paying them for it they can all go after him for that.he can get away with paying regular time and not pay over time but if hes not doing that he is in major trouble and could go to jail for that.also why is the guys name that died different in other news adds was he illegal and does he have more illegals working there go after his ass this mans blood is on his hands he should be charged for this crime.
