April is Distracted Driving Awareness Month. The Indiana Department of Transportation has created a video urging motorists to avoid distractions when driving. To watch the video, click here.
This is the time of year when highway work crews are busy repairing roadways throughout Indiana. As work crews make Hoosier roadways safer, the Indiana State Police reminds motorists to do likewise by using caution and reducing your speed as you travel through work zones. Reckless driving in a work zone is not only a life threatening hazard to highway workers; it often proves deadly to motorists.
The Indiana State Police encourages all motorists to drive responsibly and to voluntarily comply with Indiana’s traffic laws. Help keep construction zones safe by following these tips:
Avoid congested road conditions often associated with construction zones by seeking alternate routes of travel. Learn the locations of road construction zones before you depart by visiting the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) TrafficWise page at http://www.trafficwise.in.gov/ or calling 1-800-261-ROAD (7623).
