Smart Drivers. Safe Workers.

In Central Florida, it’s Work Zone Safety Week — every week! Construction is a reality of where we live. Top drivers know the signs. See if you pass the test.

When you approach a work zone, you:

Choose One

Speed up and merge early.
Gotta keep it moving!

Keep my cool and take turns merging.
Go with the flow.

Our workers thank you!

With lots of construction happening on our roadways right now, smart driving is more essential than ever. Thanks for being chill!

We know it’s tempting, but speed is one of the major causes of work zone accidents. When you see a work zone, ease off the gas to keep road crews – and you – safe from crashes.

Can you pass the crash test?

What to do if you get in a wreck on the highway.

Driving smart helps keep you safe every day. But smart drivers also are ready for the worst. Here are the top 5 things to do when one bumper meets another.

  1. Dial 911 or *FHP. Tell the dispatcher if someone is hurt and needs an ambulance.
  2. Turn on your hazard flashers. Help other drivers see you so one wreck doesn't become two.
  3. Get out of the travel lane. Pull off the road. If you crash near a work zone, you may have to drive up the road a bit to a safer location.
  4. Get away from the road. If you have to get out of your car, keep as far away from traffic as possible.
  5. Document the wreck. Snap a picture of the crash. And exchange information with the other driver (name, address, phone, license plate, driver's license).
