Flare and Traffic Cone Spacing

Jul 12th, 2011 | By | Category: Tow Tip

In general, flares and traffic cones should be spaced approximately ten feet apart for each ten miles per hour that traffic is moving, and far enough back to warn oncoming traffic and allow motorists to merge safely.

See “Setting Up the Scene for Safety” in the Tow Times July issue to find more information on scene lighting and safety.
