Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
There should be special signs in place for road work, and with freeways equipped with message signs, as in Los Angeles, the speed limits could be modulated according to weather conditions. That said, the situation was so bad in Los Angeles that, during periods of light traffic, even marked police cars traveled at 75 mph, along with ~95% of the traffic. In fact the danger of precipitating an accident by traveling at 55 or 60 was probably greater than the danger of getting a ticket for going 75, as 95% were doing.
