Highways England has released roadworks safety guidelines urging motorists to drive carefully through roadworks.
The guidelines come as the organisation reveals new research and shocking footage that show the dangers of not paying attention.
Latest data shows road workers have reported around 6,500 incidents over three years of drivers going through cones and into roadworks sites.
In fact, this amounts to an average of 175 incidents a month.
Highways England, the Government company responsible for the country’s motorways and major A roads, has released CCTV footage showing vehicles careering into roadworks sites, putting drivers and roadworks in danger.
Therefore, it is encouraging road users to take more care in roadworks.
