It's an even bigger reason to avoid driving distracted on local and state roads this Spring and Summer.
VDOT says it is important to look out for signs, orange cones and barrels and to slow down. Especially with more of them on I-95, along with the HOT lane work and pothole repairs. Between drivers and employees in work zones, accidents kill hundreds of people every year.
When you're driving, you're the first step in stopping injuries and fatalities. Look out for construction ahead signs and slow down. Never try to change lanes in one and don't drive distracted.
