Safety Tips for Driving Through Construction Zones

Safety Tips for Driving Through Construction Zones

Just this past month, two accidents in Donley County occurred a long U.S. 287, which is currently under construction. The Texas Department of Public Safety is now asking drivers to be aware of their surroundings while driving through a construction zone. While construction zones attempt to manage speeding by doubling fines for those caught going over the speed limit, the reality is that some drivers don’t pay attention to their surroundings and might not recognize the ramifications of their actions.

Work Zone Safety Tips

Construction workers put themselves in harm’s way when they’re working on the side of a highway. It’s important for both workers and drivers to brush up on some safety tips so they can travel and work without fear of being injured or killed.

Tips to keep in mind:

  • Pay attention to warning signs or electronic message boards: These will alert drivers in advance about any speed limits or construction projects about to take place.
  • Watch for slowed traffic: Slowing or stops are frequent in construction zones, so don’t tailgate and be ready to brake.
  • Minimize distractions: Don’t change the radio station, use your phone, or do anything else that might prevent you from seeing a construction worker on the side of the road.
  • Use extra caution at night: Workers and other vehicles may be difficult to spot while driving in the dark.
  • Be aware of detours and lane diversions: You want to read these notices ahead of time so you don’t miss an exit and make the decision to change lanes at the last second, putting other drivers in danger.
