Statewide Participates In National Work Zone Awareness Week

At Statewide, our number one goal is to keep drivers, pedestrians, workers, and our crews safe. We’re proud to be a part of National Work Zone Awareness Week (NWZAW), held April 20 – April 24th. Organized by the American Traffic Safety Services Association, NWZAW highlights the biggest risks in work zones, and shows how everyone plays a role in maintaining safety.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, many NWZAW events were curtailed, postponed, or cancelled. However, states, municipalities, and participating organizations were encouraged to use social media to remind the public to drive carefully in and around work zones. These educational efforts help put an end to work zone tragedies and promote “Safe Work Zones For All.” 

8 tips to remember when approaching a work zone:

  1. Expect the unexpected, road conditions may change overnight
  2. Don’t speed or tailgate
  3. Obey road crew flaggers and pay attention to the signs
  4. Stay alert and minimize distractions
  5. Keep up with the traffic flow, don’t slow down and “gawk” at road work
  6. Know your route and traffic levels before you go
  7. Be patient and stay calm
  8. Wear your seatbelt for safety
