      Safety Tips for Driving Through Work Zones

      • Pay attention - driver inattention is the number one cause of work zone accidents.
      • Leave room between you and the car ahead of you - most work zone accidents involve someone running into the car ahead of them.
      • Drive defensively - be aware of what is happening around you.
      • Merge into the proper lane before you reach the work zone.
      • Don't use cell phones or adjust your radio while driving.
      • Avoid work zones by using alternate routes.
