If you spend any portion of your day commuting on Highway 65 through Rocklin and Roseville, chances are you’re familiar with the increased amount of traffic congestion over the past several months. The city is working hard on lane expansion to create a solution for traffic issues in the coming months and years, but as the saying goes - some things simply must get worse before they can get better.
In the midst of the current roadwork on Highway 65, drivers must navigate construction crews and machines, narrowed lanes, additional signage, shorter onramps, and increasingly difficult merging circumstances. On a highway that already sees thousands of commuters per day, these extra challenges require drivers to remain even more cautious at all times.
As of Monday, April 8, CalTrans has administered extended metering times on existing Southbound 65 ramps, in an effort to promote safer merging in the most congested of areas. We hope this is the start of safer driving conditions for all, but our Amerio Law team would like to kindly remind drivers that this effort is just that – a start.
Unfortunately, we cannot control how others behave behind the wheel, so we encourage you to do your part to keep yourself and those around you safe. Drive extra carefully in these congested, construction-zoned areas, and pay close attention to drivers in front of, behind and alongside of you. Avoiding distractions as simple as using your cellphone, eating, reaching across or behind your seat, or adjusting the radio can be the difference between making it home safely, or contributing to a dangerous accident.
Additionally, if you or someone you love has been injured in an accident in Roseville, Rocklin, Lincoln or anywhere in California, contact Amerio Law Firm immediately. It is crucial that you have our experienced car accident attorneys on your side before dealing with insurance companies. We can be reached at 916-419-1111 and will gladly come to you if you’re unable to make it into the office or simply anxious about visiting a law firm. We understand and are here for you to help make a stressful situation easier.
You pay absolutely NO fees unless we recover a settlement for you.
Amerio Law Firm reminds you to drive safely!
