Here is the first installment of Safe Driving in Work Zones. These tips are brought to you by Idealease.

  1. Expect the unexpected. Normal speed limits may be reduced, traffic lanes may be changed, and people may be working on or near the road.
  2. Slow down. Speeding is one of the major causes of work zone crashes.
  3. Don’t tailgate. Keep a safe distance between you and the car ahead of you. The most common crash in a highway work zone is the rear end collision.
  4. Keep a safe distance between your vehicle and the construction workers & equipment.
  5. Pay attention to the signs. The warning signs are there to help you and other drivers move safely through the work zone. Observe the posted signs until you see the one that says you’ve left the work zone.
