Construction Zone Safety Tips

Here are some construction zone safety tips to help keep both motorists and construction workers safe.

Stay alert and give full attention to the roadway.
Pay close attention to signs and work zone flaggers.
Turn on headlights so workers and other drivers can see your vehicle.
Do not tailgate - leave plenty of room for those sudden stops.
Do not speed. Slow down to the posted speed limits.
Keep up with the traffic flow.
Do not change lanes in work zones.
Minimize distractions in vehicles. Avoid changing radio stations and using cell phones.
Expect the unexpected.
Keep an eye on workers and their equipment.
Be patient. Leave for work a little earlier due to delays, or choose alternate routes away from work zones.

Remember work zones are necessary to improve roads and make them safer.
