THIS is why Flaggers (Traffic Control Laborers) need to babysit some workers.

This a freeway (turnpike) and Flaggers are prohibited from "flagging" in this high speed environment. There SHOULD be a buffer vehicle (Truck Mounted Attenuator - TMA) AND a Spotter.
The excess length of the closed workzone is a "Buffer Space" required on all State Projects.

True.. But where is the flagger? this looks like a highway or freeway... the workzone looks to be a quarter mile long at least.. and with the amount of room they have on that road doing what they are doing; there should be a cop babysitting the zone OR they should be doing this at night..
