Construction Zone Safety

Construction Zone Safety

According to the Federal Highway Administration, during the past 5 years more than 4,400 people have died and 200,000 more were injured in work zone crashes. Most work zone fatalities involved working-age adults. Most work zone crashes occur in the summer and fall and the majority of fatal crashes occurred on roads with speed limits greater than 50mph. The Federal Highway Administration provides these tips to keep you, your passengers, and workers safe this construction season.

  • Stay Alert and Minimize Distractions. Dedicate your full attention to the roadway. Avoid changing the radio station, using a mobile phone, eating, or other distractions that can remove your concentration from the road.
  • Keep Your Headlights On
  • Pay Attention to the Road. “Listen to the signs.” Watch brake lights on vehicles ahead. Watch traffic around you and be prepared to react.
  • Merge into the Proper Lane. Merge well before you reach the lane closure. Be aware that traffic patterns can change daily.
  • Don’t tailgate. Follow other vehicles at a safe distance.
  • Obey the Posted Speed Limit. Workers may be present just feet away. Fines may be doubled for moving traffic violations. Be prepared to slow down further if conditions indicate the need.
  • Change Lanes Safely. Change lanes only where pavement markings indicate, and only when traffic conditions permit.
  • Follow Instructions from Flaggers.
  • Expect the Unexpected. Workers, work vehicles, or equipment may enter your lane without warning. Other vehicles may slow, stop, or change lanes unexpectedly.
  • Be Patient.
