  • Always buckle up. brake_logo_sm
  • Always slow to posted work zone speed limits.
  • Pay full attention. Normal speed limits may be reduced, traffic lanes may be changed and people and vehicles may be working near the road.
  • Minimize distractions, such as cell phone use.
  • Keep consistent with traffic flow.
  • Make any necessary work zone merges in advance and do not weave in and out of traffic when not needed.
  • Only make lane changes when necessary and use proper turn signals for lane changes.
  • Keep a safe distance from cars ahead, traffic barriers, construction equipment and workers.
  • Don’t tailgate. The most common highway work zone crash is the rear-end collision.
  • Watch for and follow all warning, lane/ramp closure and construction detour signs, and be prepared to change lanes or merge as directed by road signs or flaggers.
  • Continue to pay attention to work zone signs, even in areas of long-term road work.
  • Remain calm. Remember that work zones are not there to inconvenience you- they are necessary to improve the roadway.
  • Don’t resume normal driving speed until you see roadway signs indicating it is safe to do so.
  • Remember that all transportation and safety agency vehicles on the road are at work, whether inside a work zone or not. Drive attentively, as these vehicles may need to make quick stops or turns.
  • Plan ahead and give yourself time to reach your destination. Simply dial ‘511’ or log onto www.nvroads.com for a listing of Nevada highway construction.
