MN Work Zone Awareness Week 15 Apr 13

In spite of the weather, spring construction season is upon us and Work Zone Awareness Week kicks off today (MON). The Minnesota Department of Transportation is reminding motorists to slow down and pay attention in work zones. In 2012, there were more than 1,900 crashes in Minnesota work zones and three people were killed. Officials are urging drivers to obey posted speed limits, to stay alert–especially at night, and to avoid distracted driving and cell phone use.
