    WORK ZONE TIPS
    1. PAY ATTENTION: Don't text or talk on the phone. Keep both hands on the wheel.

    2. DRIVE ALERT: Watch for speed limi​t reductions, narrowing lanes, changing traffic patterns and most importantly – workers.

    3. Respect posted speed limits.

    4. BE PATIENT: Driving 45 mph instead of 55 mph through a 5-mile work zone will only add 1.2 minutes to your trip. Speeding and aggressive driving are major causes of work zone crashes.

    5. KEEP A SAFE DISTANCE: Allow space on all sides of your vehicle and maintain a safe following distance. The most common type of work zone crash is a rear-end collision.

    6. RESPECT FLAGGERS AND OBEY THEIR GUIDANCE: A flagger has the same authority as a regulatory sign, so a driver can be cited for disobeying the flagger's directions.

    7. FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS ON CONSTRUCTION SIGNAGE: Those signs are carefully selected to give drivers accurate information and important warnings.

    8. KNOW BEFORE YOU GO: Check out GoKY, TRIMARC, or WAZE for traffic and travel information. Select alternate routes when possible. If a work zone cannot be avoided, expect delays, and allow for extra time.

    9. Check out social media to plan ahead before your travels Facebook or X (formally “Twitter")​
