• Obey road crew flaggers. A flagger has the same authority as a regulatory sign, so you can be cited for disobeying his or her directions.
• Stay alert and minimize distractions. Dedicate your full attention to the roadway and avoid changing radio stations or using cellphones in a work zone.
• Keep up with the traffic flow. Motorists can help maintain pace by merging as soon as possible. Don’t drive right up to the lane closure and then try to barge in.
• Schedule enough time to drive safely. Expect delays.
Be patient and stay calm. Work zones aren’t there to personally inconvenience you.
