In 2009 the Federal Highway Adminstration added a portable traffic light system (an Automated Flagger) to the Manual Uniform Traffic Code,(MUTCD). This device removes the flagger from the roadway, and improves visibility to drivers with a signal light, and gate arm across the roadway

Construction companies know that human flaggers are a unnecessary risk, but gamble to save very little money.(These devices rent for as little as $75 per day.)
