What should you do when driving through a work zone?
Maintain your normal speed the whole way through the zone. When entering and driving through a work zone, slow down and be prepared to stop. Obey posted speed limits and be alert to conditions around you. Workers could be present.
What are the first 3 things you should do when approaching a construction zone?
When you enter a construction zone or see that one is approaching, turn down (or turn off) your radio, end any cell phone calls, and keep both hands on the wheel and eyes on the road.
What extra precautions should you take in a construction zone?
Barriers should be set up in a construction zone to keep vehicles at a safe distance from workers, unsafe surfaces, and equipment. Still, without the risk of driving your vehicle into another lane, a soft shoulder, or another unsafe area, keep as safe a distance as possible from construction workers and equipment.
What is the most common collision in a work zone?
Rear-end crashes (running into the rear of a slowing or stopping vehicle) are the most common type of work zone crash. Fatal work zone crashes occur most often in summer and fall.
When using an acceleration lane you should first?
You have to be careful when entering the freeway. You should search ahead for traffic on the ramp as well as for a gap in traffic on the freeway. Using the acceleration lane, look for an opening in traffic, signal and accelerate to or near the traffic speed, yield to traffic already on freeway.
What speed are typically safe in the city?
The speed limit on city streets is usually 35 mph, though in residential areas and near schools, the limit is generally 25 mph.
When preparing to turn you should?
As you prepare to turn, reduce speed and stay as far to the right as possible. Begin the turn in the lane nearest to the right-hand curb and end the turn in the lane nearest the right-hand curb. Give turn signal. Yield to pedestrians who may be crossing your path.
When should you merge in a construction zone?
When traffic is moving at highway speeds and there are no backups, it makes sense to move sooner to the lane that will remain open through construction. The bottom line is to merge when it is safe to do so.
What should you not do when driving in a construction work zone?
- Speed up or slow down significantly while going through a work zone.
- Slow down to look at the construction work being done.
- Resume normal speed until after you emerge completely out of the work zone area.
- Tailgate. Most of the accidents within a work zone are rear-end collisions.
- Change lanes within a work zone.
What does a safety officer do on a construction site?
Facilitate site health and safety meetings. Identification of the hazards and risks relevant to the construction project through regular coordinated site inspections. Establish and maintain health and safety communication structures and systems, distribution of health and safety specific documents to sub-contractors.
Can you walk through a construction site?
Yes, it is trespassing. It’s the same thing—the property belongs to someone else along with everything on that property, so removing or damaging anything on a construction site would be theft and vandalism and walking through the construction site would and should be trespassing.
How do you avoid a work zone crash?
Tips to help prevent work zone crashes:
- Always maintain a proper following distance. At 50 to 55 mph use the six-second rule.
- Avoid all distractions.
- When making a lane change leading in to or exiting the work zone, use the “lean and look” method to eliminate any blind spots around the front of the truck.

What should you be alert for in a construction area?
Watch for brake lights, and be alert to the possibility that trucks and other vehicles might be pulling out of the work zone and onto the roadway. Obey the posted speed limit, and remember that fines are often doubled for traffic violations in a construction zone.
