    workers face to go to work as a result of hydraulic fracking is analogous to children in school. If there is a child who gets sick and does not attend school, they will not receive the important information covered in class. The same situation goes for workers living in fracking areas and how they are late to work due to detours from damaged roads. In other words, if workers are late or unable to commute to work, they will not be able to collect income to support their families. In turn, businesses will suffer because consumers will be unable to go out to buy goods and services and the local economy will not flourish. To further develop and add on to this concept of the local economy suffering, the Stanford Law Journal depicts that, “In the Bakken Shale oil region, the number of highway accidents went up 68% from 2006-2010”(Katrien 84). To put into perspective, the corroded roads lead to the increase in percentage of accidents people face. One must conduct a marginal analysis of the costs and benefits of the number of deaths versus the profit made from fracking. In simpler terms, risk assessors conduct marginal analysis tests in situations which leave companies in difficult situations or circumstances.
