Urging wearable illumination research to improve roadside construction worker safety.

Currently, the safety apparel requirements for nighttime roadside construction workers are the same they've been since the 1980s. Unfortunately, struck-by incidents remain the number one cause of injury and death of all workers in the construction industry. 

There are existing options available today that can increase the visibility of these workers to roadside dangers. This petition is requesting the US DOT to fund research looking into how portable, multi-functional, wearable safety lights can reduce worker injuries and save lives.
