An Article One Should Not Read Just Before Long Road Trip

Blogging will be light over the next week as I head with the family to my in-laws (fear not, the home and animals will be secured by dog/house-sitter).  So, with a long drive or two ahead, this story raises the question of whether my ignorance was bliss, which is now gone.
But some states have tried to blunt motorists’ ability to sue, passing laws protecting contractors from liability if they were following state-approved plans. It is also not uncommon for state highway officials to testify on behalf of contractors in wrongful death lawsuits — or to help them in other ways.

I guess I will be more careful as I fly through work-zones.  Safe travels to all.
