Work Zone Accident Awareness Week

hydroplaningMarch 23-27 is National Work Zone Safety Awareness Week (NWZAW). The week’s events are sponsored by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and the goal is to bring attention to how motorists can contribute to safety in work zones.

Since 1999, federal and state safety agencies and officials have banded together to support NWZAW and the workers who are repairing our nation’s roadways.

The week is devoted to awareness-raising campaigns to help motorists make the best possible decisions when driving in work zones.

Work Zone Safety Recommendations

Workers injured on the job often need an attorney to get all of their workers’ compensation benefits. But all motorists can drive in a manner that decreases the likelihood of an accident.

Work Zone Safety Tips

A work zone is any area on a street or highway where construction or maintenance is taking place. In a work zone, workers should:

  • Stay vigilant and alert
  • Be prepared to act quickly
  • Merge as soon as possible
  • Avoid passing in a work zone
  • Avoid tailgating
  • Reduce speed even when no workers are present

Motorists who fail to follow these work zone safety tips may become involved in civil and criminal lawsuits for the injuries that they have caused.
