^^^ I want an article about this. I want to know why we don't have civilian flaggers who actually do their job as opposed to chatting w/ construction workers, staring in the hole in the street w/ their back to traffic, texting with one hand, drinking their Dunkin' coffee w/ the other. This has been bothering me so much, ever since a couple of years ago I saw a civilian flagging crew working (yes - actually doing their job!) in VT. The contrast was just shocking. These people were actually focussed 100% on doing their job. It's been my experience that the only time police officers are doing their job on construction detail is when they have no other choice - i.e. two lanes reduced to one. In 90% of the cases, if they can avoid doing any actual work, they do. Police officers: That guy who yells "Nice work officer!" as he drives by you with your back to traffic - that's me, and that's sarcasm.

Because civilian flaggers don't save much money. They only have a slightly lower hourly rate (37 vs 32 I read somewhere), but then you have to add in the cost of health insurance, sick time, vacation time, et cetera. All those extra costs are already covered in the officer's regular salary. You have to be naive to think that all flagmen are going to be always fully intent on their job... Their going to do the same things - text, make phone calls, listen to music, whatever. Also if the officer can narrow lanes or something to prevent needing to alternate traffic isn't that better for everyone? I'm pretty sure that's going to make traffic move better.

I NEVER WANT TO SEE A FLAGGER IN WALTHAM PERIOD!!!! You people barley listen to the police officer with a gun on him. What makes you think you would listen to a flagger. Those police officers are there not just to direct traffic but stop the idiots from going the wrong way against traffic and causing a collision. You would not believe how many accidents have been avoided on Trapelo Road in the last few weeks by alert police officers stopping a car coming Eastbound when traffic is only allowed Westbound.

Also the residents can help on Trapelo Road. At no time Monday-Friday from 9AM-5PM should you be traveling towards Belmont. Residents should travel up to Forest Street to Beaver Street to Waverley Oaks Road.
