Scooter, bicycle, and motorcycle riders need to be extra cautious when following the sweeper trucks that are clearing roadway dirt caused by construction vehicles. The water they leave behind takes approximately 90 seconds to dry, a period during which two-wheeled vehicles are more susceptible to losing traction on the slick surfaces. Keeping a clear distance and driving more slowly through these wet areas will substantially decrease the likelihood of losing control.
