Tips for driving safely in work zones
The most important action drivers can take is to pay complete attention to the driving task, especially in the transition zone before the work area. An inattentive driver is the most common cause of work zone crashes. Drivers and their passengers — not workers — make up the majority of work zone fatalities.
Orange is your clue! Slow down when you see orange signs, cones, barrels and barricades. Speeding is the second most common cause of work zone crashes.
Double your following distance. Don’t tailgate.
Get in the correct lane well in advance.
Remember, work zone traffic lanes often are narrow, without shoulders or emergency lanes.
Be aware of temporary accesses on either side of the roadway.
Expect delays — plan for them and leave early so you can drive safely through the work zone.
Patience is vital! Be as courteous to other drivers as you’d like them to be to you.
Avoid work zones when you can by using an alternate route.
Know before you go!
