I am praying for the man hit as well as the man driving! Don't imply that I do not care for workers! I have the utmost respect for workers putting their lives at risk daily. BUT...if the consequence of this situation is the driver going to jail...as some other people commenting have suggested...they are wrong. They don't have the FACTS. Let's pray for them all (men and families)and not blow this out of proportion and assume that the driver was acting irresponsible. We have ALL made split second driving errors. Some have had consequences such as this situation and others have left no marks...just close calls.ok guys...I am a road worker......have done flagwork MANY times....2 outa 3 people are on the phone.very scarey! Signs were posted..people were working hoping to go home safe and healthy. It's on my mind EVERY day. If the person was going to a funeral I feel for him and his family. that IS NOT AN EXCUSE for hitting a road worker......a FACT stating going to a funeral was posted .....implying that FACT makes it ok!!!!!!!! I pray for the person hit.....hang in there.
This situation has the potential (due to the new laws) to turn out horribly wrong for a family. It could be yours...think about it.
