Officials Stress Safety When Driving through Work Zones

Signs, flags, and construction workers are a common occurrence this time of year on roadways all across the state of New York and officials are stressing caution by motorists when driving through these work zones. Springtime every year around the country marks the start of road construction projects to repair potholed roads, repave roads, and expand roads and construction workers are put in the line of danger when walking down these roads next to moving vehicles. New York officials stress caution to motorists and tell motorists that there might be more construction zones throughout the state because of extra funding. "We got extra money from the economic recovery package, so there's going to be more construction sites and we want people to pay attention," said Michael Shamma, Utica Regional Director for the New York State Department of Transportation.

Speed is the main cause of construction work zone accidents along the roads of the state of New York but officials say that driver inattention comes in at a close second as another cause of work zone accidents throughout the state. It is against the law in the state of New York to use a mobile device while operating a motor vehicle so officials are telling motorists to drop the cell phone while driving through a construction work zone so that all of their attention can be focused on the road and the work going on next to them.
