Drivers need to be fully aware of how to drive in work zones. You don’t want to get pulled over in a construction zone—it’s expensive—and you certainly don’t want to harm anyone.
So, when driving through road work zones, you should:
  • Avoid all distractions
  • Slow down and adhere to posted speed limits and other signage
  • Try to avoid weaving
  • Keep a safe distance from other vehicles
  • Merge carefully
  • Plan ahead, if possible, to avoid any delays
  • Remain calm
