Drive Safe and Embrace the Orange

Construction work zone crashes are 100% preventable,

and I pledge to do my part to make zero fatalities a reality.

I know that driving recklessly through a construction work zone could end my life, the lives of others, and hurt those I care for the most.

I won’t:

  • Text and drive
  • Talk on my phone in a work zone

I will:

  • Obey posted work zone speed
    limits – 24/7
  • Pay attention to changing conditions
    when approaching a work zone
  • Be courteous to other motorists
