Work Zone Safety
National Work Zone Safety Awareness Week (April 15-19)
Georgia DOT participates in a nationwide Work Zone Safety awareness and education campaign. The goal is to educate highway construction and maintenance workers, contractors and the motoring public about the dangerous conditions in work zones. A key focus is to educate motorists that they are more likely to be killed or injured in work zone accidents than Georgia DOT workers. The general public accounts for 85% of work zone fatalities nationwide.
