We often moan and grumble about roadworks in place with no apparent work being done, but do you ever give a thought to the men and women setting out those closures or operating those Impact Protection Vehicles (IPV’s) or those the IPV is there to protect.

A recent share from a friend and former colleague shows in some detail the results of an IPV or ‘Crash Cushion’ doing it’s job.

The alarming things for Me is that the impact was from a ‘Professional Driver’ in a 44T Artic.

More importantly, these are far from isolated incidents and should highlight why highway maintenance is one of the most dangerous jobs out there.
