Respect Road Workers who are working to Improve your Journey!

Hundreds of workers carry out essential improvements to our roads across Northern Ireland every day. Yet in recent years, a number of road workers have been injured after being struck by vehicles driven by members of the public who disregarded stop signs and unlawfully drove through a road closure.

Respect the safety of road workers by slowing down at road works and abiding by all temporary traffic signs and lights. It’s the law.

Temporary traffic lights and speed limits are legally enforceable and there to protect the road workers and road users. Ignoring them could result in a £60 fixed penalty notice and 3 penalty points.

Road workers are there to improve our journeys by carrying out necessary work on carriageways and to ensure that essential services are available to homes and businesses by working on the utility equipment which lies beneath the roads. They should be permitted to carry out these duties without fear of injury or abuse.

Where possible, roads are kept open while work is carried out but this can only be done with the co-operation of road users.

Traffic controls are put in place for everyone’s safety and by ignoring speed restrictions, stop signs and coned areas you are not just risking the life of road workers but you are also putting yourself and others in danger.
