Last year in Pennsylvania, 21 people lost their lives in highway work zone accidents. As we begin the summer construction season, we worked with our client, Associated Pennsylvania Constructors, and with APC member company, Flagger Force, to develop this video calling attention to the need to slow down, be alert and, in the words of PennDOT Secretary Barry Schoch, “just drive.”
Tuesday was Primary Election Day in Pennsylvania, and tens of voters flocked to the polls. Oh well, it’s only democracy.

Several weeks ago, we brought you a special guest blog that gave us all a student’s view on the rising cost of college tuition. So it is only natural that we follow up with some thoughts from someone who sees this crisis firsthand on a day-to-day basis.
