Work Zones

Whenever you come across a work zone or construction in the road, it’s important to be mindful of everything around you. Drivers can make unpredictable decisions near construction zones, so make sure you drive slowly and are prepared to stop at any time. Watch out for construction debris or workers walking into oncoming traffic.

Vehicle Debris

Accidents happen all the time, and though most debris is usually cleaned up afterwards, car parts and bumpers are sometimes left in the road. You may also encounter trucks hauling equipment that isn’t secured properly and could easily fall into the road. Be on the lookout for road debris when you’re driving and take care to avoid it at all costs. If you spot a pickup improperly hauling large supplies, consider moving into another lane in case the supplies fall out.
