Highway officials are putting out the call for motorists to use care and caution when driving through work zones. April 8th through the 12th has been designated National Work Zone Awareness Week, seeking to shed light on the increasing effects of distracted driving on work-zone employees and motorists. The theme for the week is "Drive Like You Work Here." According to the group WorkZoneSafety.org, there were 132 fatal accidents in road construction zones in the nation in 2017.
