Fatal Indiana Car Accidents in construction zones have become a serious concern for state officials. In fact, three highway workers were killed last year alone along the state’s roadways. In an effort to combat this problem, the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) will be partnering with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration in conducting a Construction Zone Safety Awareness campaign this week.

A story released by WorkersCompensation.com explained the campaign kicked off with words from INDOT Commissioner, Michael Cline, who stated workers in the highway construction industry face a number of daily on-the-job hazards. One of the most dangerous, though, is a fast-moving vehicle.

The campaign is aimed to educate motorists on the importance of slowing down and staying vigilant in highway construction zones with increased police presence. Law enforcement will be watching for motorists who commit safety violations including speeding, reckless behavior, distracted driving, or driving under the influence. Any driver who is caught committing an infraction will be stopped and cited.

Indiana Department of Labor Commissioner, Sean M. Keefer, added his organization will also be working closely with businesses in the state to bring attention to “transportation-related hazards and exposures.”

The Indianapolis Personal Injury Lawyers with Stewart & Stewart Attorneys applaud the efforts being made to improve highway construction zone safety in Indiana. The firm hopes the campaign will be successful in preventing future collisions.
