Orlando, Fla.—This year’s National Work Zone Awareness Week, which highlights safety as the roadway construction season commences, just happened now on April 26-30. In support of the National Work Zone Awareness Week, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration is encouraging drivers of large trucks to use extra caution, and is urging all drivers to remain alert, obey traffic signs and allow all vehicles extra space.
In Florida, there were 68 work zone fatalities in 2019, according to the National Work Zone Safety Information Clearinghouse, a project of the American Road and Transportation Builders Association Transportation Development Foundation. In Texas, on the other hand, according to their local DOT, there were more than 22,000 traffic crashes in work zones in 2020. Their system of interstate mileage is relied on by truck drivers serving its agriculture and energy industries. Georgia is also a busy state for freight movement, due to their many corporate distribution centers and inland and coastal ports. Crashes in Georgia work zones resulted in 5,123 injuries and 24 fatalities in 2020, according to the Georgia Department of Transportation.
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration plans to focus its safety awareness efforts on these three states which are the ones that experience high rates of work zone crashes involving large trucks: Florida, Georgia and Texas. According to FMCSA, drivers in these states can expect to hear public service announcements and see safety messaging on billboards as they near work zones.
