With the weather getting nice there will be a lot of road work being done. Don’t forget about those road workers in your travels. They are human and have families too. It is easy to become frustrated with delays at those construction sites, but keep in mind those workers want to go home to their families . They are just moms & dads, brothers & sisters like you and me. “Give Em A Brake”. Keep them safe!!
Tips in a work zone:
- Drive with headlights on.
- Don’t be distracted..pay attention!
- Drive the posted speed limit.
- Maintain a safe following distance..don’t tailgate.
- Expect the unexpected!
- Fines doubled for speeding, failure to obey traffic control devices, etc.
- Up to 5 years jail time for Homicide By Vehicle (killing a worker).
- 15 days license suspension for speed violations.
