The highway work zone can be a dangerous place. Traffic fatalities in work zones are increasing – from 799 deaths in 2017 to 857 in 20201. In a 2022 nationwide study, 64% of highway contractors reported crashes in their work zones in the past year.2
In response, state governments are now enacting new laws requiring the use of shadow vehicles with Truck-Mounted Attenuators (TMA) during lane closures or when slow-moving construction vehicles are operating in highway lanes.
California and New York have enacted these laws, and other states are expected to follow suit soon.
To protect your work crews and to conform with these laws, Danella is now renting Crash Attenuator Trucks. These trucks provide the required attenuator plus large arrow board and strobe lights for outstanding visibility.
“At Danella the safety of your work crews is our top priority. Our Crash Attenuator Trucks are designed to protect your personnel when they’re working on the roadway. They have the required Truck-Mounted Attenuator and are outfitted with strobe and work lights for added visibility and safety. Danella backs every vehicle with superior maintenance and service for outstanding performance.”
