Even if you don’t think you have been injured, there is a possibility that you have sustained internal damage, especially to your kidneys.

If you think you may have a kidney injury, be sure to see a doctor right away.
Construction zones on our roads are legally required to be marked with the proper signage for safety. This signage includes but is not limited to warnings for drivers to slow down, yield, and be aware of potential hazards.

By law, these markings must be maintained so that they are always visible and effective.

Deer and other animals are often active at dawn and dusk when visibility is low, and drivers may have difficulty spotting them.
