I hope this new program helps us Flag Persons out on the road to not only take us seriously but take our safety into consideration by not speeding in a work zone what so ever, allow us to have a law pass that Flag People be in the same rights as emergancy workers, fire fighters, police officers, forest rangers that all drivers have to slow down to 30 k in a work zone. That we do not get spit on, things thrown at us, drivers threatening to hit us physically and / or use there vehicles to intimidate us out on the road. A flag persons job is just as important job as anyone out there and we have to take everyone's safety into consideration while we work out on the road, not only the driving public, pedestrians, cyclists. It is not as some people tell us an easy, lazy job, simple or as many are always told get a real job. We want to all go home safetly to our families.
