Traffic Drums Can Roll Over?

This may not be the case with every single traffic drum that exists (because there are a lot) but it is a spec that needs to be met in most cases in order to be used on highways.  A lot of states also have specific reflective specs, so watch out for that next time you buy traffic drums.
