Water on roads

I'm thinking of bidding on an irrigation sytems that involves heads in the median of a roadway. I know the majority of the water will be directed towards the plant material, but some will inevitably end up on the road. If there's an accident because the road is wet from the irrigation, who's responsible? how do you guys handle this?

How wide is the median and how is it planted and with what?

The simple answer is we deal with it through design but lawsuits and accidents are a no worry unless there is gross negligence in design. Something like a 25ft rotor in a 20 ft width smaking a driver in the face through an open window and causing him to swerve into a kid or pedstrian etc would be on you. A few puddles or road surface wetness is a normal driving situation and I won't even use the word hazard.

It's a four lane highway but I havn't done the measurements yet because I'm not sure I'm going to do the job. Your point makes sense. Thanks
