Tips From The Pros
This is the time of year when it seems like utility, city and road construction crews are everywhere.
While work zone detours and delays can be frustrating, remember that more than 80% of victims in work zone crashes are motorists.
Improved work zone design, training, law enforcement and awareness have helped reduce fatalities and injuries by 35% in the last decade, but in order to continue this trend, each of us must take personal responsibility to stay alert and pay attention to workers, and to each other.
Respect the work zone, obey posted signs and speed limits and put your cell phones away.
