As we observe National Work Zone Awareness Week, it’s crucial to spotlight the sobering statistics that highlight the ongoing risks in work zones across Kentucky and the nation. In 2023 alone, Kentucky witnessed 1,251 work zone crashes, leading to 247 injuries and 17 tragic fatalities. Notably, 14 of these fatalities were motorists or passengers, underscoring the critical importance of heightened awareness and caution in these areas.

How to Observe #WorkZoneAwarenessWeek

National Work Zone Awareness Week serves as a poignant reminder for all of us to practice safer driving habits, especially in construction zones. Here are some ways you can contribute to making our roads safer:

  • Stay Alert: Keep your full attention on the road and avoid distractions.
  • Obey Road Signs: Follow the guidance of posted signs and any on-site flaggers.
  • Slow Down: Speeding is a leading cause of work zone accidents. Adhere to reduced speed limits.
  • Maintain Distance: Keep a safe distance between your vehicle and the one ahead to allow for sudden stops.
  • Plan Ahead: Expect delays and plan your route accordingly to avoid rushing through work zones.

By incorporating these practices into your driving habits, you can help reduce the risk of accidents and contribute to a safer environment for both workers and motorists.
