An 'intelligent' road cone which screams when hit by a vehicle will help save lives, claims the Highways Agency.
In the last three years, eight roadworkers have been killed by motorists while undertaking maintenance work on motorways and major A roads.
The cone works by 'screaming' when it's hit by a passing vehicle, which often happens at high speed.
This week the Highways Agency, which is responsible for the road network in England, is campaigning for drivers to take extra care and obey speed limits through roadworks.
