As construction season ramps up, MoDOT is urging drivers to slow down and pay attention. So far this year, motorists have struck 18 work zone buffer trucks.
And even with lower traffic volumes, MoDOT and law enforcement agencies are seeing a drastic increase in speeding. We need to reverse this dangerous trend.
Slow down, pay attention and remember: work zone safety is in your hands. Buckle up phone down.
It’s never too early to start teaching kids about roadway safety.
In conjunction with Work Zone Awareness Week, MoDOT has launched a web page that features printable mazes, word games, a comic book and coloring pages designed to share safety messages for future drivers.
