Work smarter not harder

Why can't crews work at night like they do in other cities. Why close lanes during the day when traffic is heaver and temperatures are hotter? It would make sense (to me anyway) to work at night, they already have the big lights that light the area up to almost daylight status.
Another peeve of mine in construction zones, when the lane is closing go ahead and move over instead of running as fast as you can up to the front and trying to force your way into traffic by cutting off those who have done the right thing when they saw the signs back down the road.
Last Thursday I was in the traffic on BJ Exp at Gordon Hwy when someone doing just what I described and NOT paying attention had someone cut them off (another one not paying attention) and side swiped them. Nobody was hurt luckily but two vehicles were unnecessarily damaged heavily.
Night time has less traffic, some of this can be avoided.
