Work Zone Safety
"Expect the Unexpected"
2015 National Work Zone Awareness Week, March 23 - 27
More than 40,000 people are injured nationwide each year as a result of work zones crashes.
You can stay safe by:
- Slowing down
- Not tailgating
- Avoiding distractions -- text messaging or talking on cell phones.
Originally used in 2000, the 2015 theme -- "Expect the Unexpected" -- is a message that bears repeating. By focusing driver attention on work zone safety and work zone workers, the number of work zone fatalities continues to decline.
