Also, next week is National Work Zone Awareness Week (April 11–15). Safety agencies across the country, including ADOT, are asking drivers to focus on safe driving and to pay attention when they see signs and other safety devices that tell them they are entering a work zone.
ADOT reminds drivers, “Please slow down and stay alert. Lives are on the line, including your own and those of your passengers and highway workers. Remember, Highway Work Zones are a Sign to Slow Down.”
