Slow Down
Slow down to the posted speed limits and pay attention, and keep a safe distance between you and the vehicle in front of you
Keep Your Eyes On the Road

  • Pay Attention
  • Never use a cell phone or text while driving
  • Stay focused on the road and remove all distractions

Obey the Signs
Signs contain important information that warns motorists or provides them with essential information about the work ahead, traffic conditions, road closures and detours.
