DISTRACTED DRIVING CONTINUES TO THREATEN ROAD SAFETY
In conjunction with the announcement of the record-breaking decline of traffic fatalities in 2010, the U.S. Department of Transportation reminds drivers about the dangers of distracted driving. NHTSA data indicates that driver distraction continues to be a significant threat to traffic safety.
AWP’s mission to provide safe and compliant work zones becomes increasingly important as distracted driving threatens the safety of motorists and those working on America’s roadways. A survey conducted by NHTSA found that drivers rarely consider traffic situations when choosing to use their phone. It is AWP’s job to provide traffic control solutions that will alert distracted drivers and protect road workers. Our work zones are designed and implemented by professionals to provide warnings, barriers and ease of traffic flow for even the most complicated work zones. The solutions we provide meet and exceed regulations specific to each location and project because safety is our highest priority.
