April 11-15, 2022 is National Work Zone Awareness Week
Please help us get the word out:
Driving through Work Zones is NOT a GAME!
Did you know that Answering a text takes the driver’s attention for about 5 seconds—
which at 55 mph is like driving the length of a football field
WITH YOUR EYES CLOSED.
Don’t Be A Statistic – Drive Undistracted!
Distracted Drivers KILL!
We are excited to have the final version of the Work Zone Safety PSA that Ethan Crowe with the University of Alabama/SafeState created for us. He did a fantastic job. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M106naFEMco&t=7s
We were so blessed to have members who were willing to participate in creating this PSA by providing signs, equipment, and acting. We could not have put it together without everyone helping.
With numerous roadway construction projects underway in our area, we
hope to reach as many people as possible to help bring attention to the problem of distracted driving.
Our goal is to help save the lives of the men and women working on our roadways. We have lost too many workers to distracted driving in recent years.
Please share this PSA on your website and through your social media.
The more people we reach the better chance we have of saving lives.
