This is National Work Zone Awareness Week.
What is that, you ask? Well, it’s a week set aside every year to bring attention to the importance of driving safely through highway work zones.
Why does that matter? It matters, because work zones are offices for some people. That’s right, often times they work just a few feet away from moving traffic!
That’s why it’s so important to slow down and pay attention whenever you drive through a work zone. The people who work in them want to get home to see their families, and their families want them to get home safely.
So, please, “Don’t Be That Driver”…take your foot off the gas, put your phone away and focus on the road. Thank you for doing your part to help keep work zones safe!
Have a great day.
