I'm getting a late start on it, but this week is National Work Zone Awareness Week.
This special week is observed across the country by state, local and federal transportation officials in an effort to get people to drive safely through construction zones, for their own safety, and the safety of the construction workers out there.
U.S. Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood blogged about the number of accidents and deaths in work zones this week. Check it out here. It's more than I would have expected.
