Safe Driving Tips

  • MDOT Work Zone Safety Cone Icon

    Expect the unexpected. Normal speed limits may be reduced, traffic lanes may change, and workers, vehicles, or equipment may enter your lane without warning.

  • MDOT Work Zone Safety No Cell Icon

    Minimize distractions. Dedicate your full attention to the road. Avoid using cellphones or engaging in other distracting behaviors while driving in a work zone.

  • MDOT Work Zone Safety Worker Icon

    Obey road crews and signs. Crews know what is best for moving traffic safely in the work zone. Signs are posted in advance of work zones to give you time to follow their instructions to merge, slow down or stop.

  • MDOT Work Zone Safety Speedometer Icon

    Don’t speed or tailgate. In Michigan, fines are double for speeding in a work zone, so slow down. Keep a safe distance between you and the vehicle ahead of you.  

  • MDOT Work Zone Safety Vehicle Icon

    Pay attention to other drivers. Vehicles may slow, stop, or change lanes unexpectedly in a work zone. Watch for brake lights and be prepared to react to traffic around you. 

  • MDOT Work Zone Safety Calm Icon

    Be patient and stay calm. Work zones are not there to inconvenience you. They are necessary to improve our roads and make your future drive better.
