Orange means all yellow targets are double point values

"Hit a Worker
$10,000 Fine"

Yep.  $10,000 would sure be fine

Having driven down I-75 several times the past few months, the orange is noticeable as a "did they run out of yellow?" reaction.  The sudden lane shift and uncomfortably close concrete barriers add to the "omfarkingawwwd" reaction that I'm certain my fellow drivers will handle with complete calm.

If you've got the time and budget to change the color of the road striping, your construction project is taking too long. Toss out a couple orange barrels, slap some cold patch in that hole, and move on.

/yes, I know bridges, etc. take months.

Cleffer: Cultured: I dunno about the orange paint, but I would definitely slow down for strippers.

I grew up just north of NYC and there were highways with reflectors. There's a certain type you can use. It's a cost thing.


Strippers with reflectors? Usually it's just glitter.

Hard at work, watching the guy with the shovel.

Glad they're wearing their official OSHA mandated reflective safety gear as well. Be a shame if a passing rollerblader didn't see them and caused an accident.


This attitude is why we don't have a  working class in this country anymore.

Random Anonymous Blackmail: If you don't notice the orange cones and sh*t, you sure as hell aren't going to notice the paint change.

Waste of money.


I doubt it's any more expensive than putting down temporary white lane lines in the construction zones.

If they did that in Wisconsin, they'd never change it back. Highway projects take so long that by the time they finish the road's almost ready to be repaved again.

Cleffer: I'd just be happy with road paint that I could see when it rains.


Ohio has this problem. And no reflectors on the roads. When I lived in Florida, I had no problem seeing the lanes even in a deluge. Moved to Ohio, and I-71 looked like it didn't have lanes in even a mild rain.
