I'm not too worried, I don't block full lanes, just give me a little buffer room, and anyways, Im sure LEOs will understand you wanting a little space...bet they don't like getting buzzed anymore than we do.

I recently saw a landscape contractor block..I'd say roughly a mile worth of a lane on a somewhat busy road to do a large mulch job. They had it all, truck mounted attenuators, cones, signs, the whole sha-bang. I thought you had to have some type of certification to do that much though, but who knows, maybe they did have it.

I put comes out as well. It makes me feel a little bit better knowing they see something that catches their attention when going around my trailer.

Here is an interesting reading regarding traffic/safety cones and their uses... this was from FL. It's pretty long, but pretty informative. http://www.usfa.fema.gov/pdf/efop/efo28245.pdf

I had the cops go after the driver that ran down my cones and caused me to have to jump in between the tractor and tandems. His employer got an ear full from me and likely fired him from the way he responded in my phone call.

Also, cones give you a audible warning if a car hits one, might give you just enough time to jump out of the way, or at least flip em a bird, lol. I've always used them.

I've put out cones through a whole career of unloading heavy equipment/wide loads on various roads from tollways to townships, and never received a ticket or was ever approached by an officer for it. To the contrary they have pulled up behind me and signaled me to go right ahead, as they parked and put their lights on to direct traffic clear of my work unloading.
