  • Work Zone Driving Safety Tips for Motorists:
    Expect the Unexpected - Speed limits may be reduced, traffic lanes may be changed, and people may be working on or near the road.

  • Slow Down – Speeding is one of the major causes of work zone crashes.

  • Don't Tailgate – Keep a safe following distance between you and the car ahead.

  • Keep a Safe Distance from Construction Workers – and equipment.
  • Pay Attention to Posted Signs – Warning signs are there to help guide you, use them.

  • Stay Alert and Avoid Distracted Driving – Work zones present extra challenges and obstacles. Motorists need to pay attention to the road and their surroundings.

  • Plan Your Trip – Schedule your trip with plenty of extra time. Expect delays and leave early so you are not anxious while driving.

  • Be Patient - Work zone crew members are working to improve the road and make your future drive better.

  • Be Aware of Blindspots – Trucks have large blindspots in front, back and either side. Try to avoid lingering in this space and do not cut in front of a truck.
