How likely are fatal work zone accidents?


Drivers, whether they are in a hurry or not, encounter construction sites. While many drivers in Pennsylvania and elsewhere in the nation respond with frustration, the reality is that drivers should focus on being more cautious in these areas. In fact, when drivers are negligent in work zones, they not only risk their life and the lives of other travelers on the roadways but also risk the lives of those working at the construction site.

Proposal made to increase work zone safety in Pennsylvania


During the warmer months, residents in Pennsylvania often see an increase in travel across the state. In addition, these months are also when construction increases on all types of roadways in the state. It is important to ensure the safety and quality of the roads, and it is equally important l that drivers use caution in work zones. Just like pedestrians and motorists are at risk of being involved in an accident with a negligent driver, negligence by a motorist in a construction area could lead to a fatal work zone accident with construction workers and other travelers in the area.

Are warning labels effectively warning consumers about risks?

Consumers in Pennsylvania are often concerned about the quality and safety of the products he or she purchases no matter the type of the product. It is important not only to consider the manufacturer of the good but also to know that steps have been taken to ensure the safety concerns about the product have been addressed. Whether there are known risks, potential dangers or the possibility of the misuse of a product, placing a warning label on a product allows for a product to remain on the self. But do warning labels serve their purpose and alert consumers about the risks of an item?

What is considered an insufficient warning on a product?


It is natural to think that products such as common household goods and personal products are safe for consumers. Everyday, consumers purchase, use and consume various goods without fear of being harmed by the product. But even when a product is not inherently dangerous or harmful, warning labels serve to ensure safe usage and help to avoid harm to consumers. But what happens if a warning label is not suitable and how is suitability determined?
