Construction zones can be dangerous for drivers, but by following these tips, you can help prevent accidents:
- Be aware of the reduced speed limit. The speed limit in construction zones is typically reduced to 55 mph or less.
- Stay alert for workers and equipment. Construction workers are often working in and around the road, so it’s important to be aware of their presence.
- Don’t tailgate. Tailgating increases the risk of rear-end collisions, which are common in construction zones.
- Be prepared to stop suddenly. Construction zones can be unpredictable, so it’s important to be prepared to stop suddenly.
- Use your turn signals. Let other drivers know your intentions before changing lanes or making a turn.
- Don’t change lanes in the construction zone. Changing lanes in a construction zone can be dangerous, so it’s best to avoid it if possible.
By following these tips, you can help make the road safer for everyone.
