Awareness of Highway Workers and Emergency Personnel
See Orange, Slow Down, Save Lives
In order to carry out IDOT's commitment of zero fatalities, it is vital to keep our motorists and workers safe on Illinois roadways. Work zones can be complex for motorists to travel through and the unexpected can occur. IDOT urges and encourages motorists to pay attention to workers in construction and maintenance work zones during normal work, nighttime and off-peak hours. Continuing efforts are made every day by IDOT and other partner agencies to reduce the death toll of workers including IDOT staff, construction workers, and emergency personnel on Illinois roadways. To learn more about Work Zone Safety and Scott’s law (the Move Over Law), please visit the IDOT Work Zone website.
