Work zone crashes claim three lives every day in the U.S.
Providing safe highways for not only motorists, but for highway workers whose lives are on the line every day, is the top priority of the Nevada Department of Transportation.
Work zones are there to improve the roads that we all drive on. They are no place for impatient or aggressive driving. The signs and other directions given at work zones are intended to get you, your family, and other motorists around you to your destination safely. So, when approaching a work zone, remember to slow down and follow all of the important safety tips and information. Your life - and ours - depends on it!
Double Penalty in Work Zones
Nevada Revised Statute 484.3667 doubles the penalty for speeding, up to $1,000, in any marked road construction or maintenance work zone when workers are present.
