Road Safety Facts

  • In Indiana, it is against the law for anyone under the age of 21 to use a cell phone device.
  • In Michigan, there is no cell phone use by any driver holding a learners permit or intermediate license.
  • In Illinois, it is against the law for anyone under the age of 19 to use a cell phone device.
  • Drivers are the most frequent fatality in work zone crashes.
  • Most work zone fatalities involve working-age adults.
  • Rear-end crashes (running into the rear of a slowing or stopping vehicle) are the most common type of work zone crash.
  • Fatal work zone crashes occur most often in summer and fall.
  • The majority of fatal work zone crashes occurred on roads with speed limits greater than 50 mph.
  • Stopping distance for motor vehicles at 50 mph:
    • Dry roadway — 300 ft
    • Wet roadway — 400 ft
    • Icy pavement — 1250 ft
  • A loaded 80,000 lb. tractor-trailer requires almost 50% more stopping distance.
  • It takes only an extra 25 seconds to cover 1 mile at 45 mph compared to 65 mph.

Safe Driving Tips For Back To School

  • Slow down. Obey speed limit in school zones. Speed limits in school zones are reduced for a reason. A pedestrian struck by a vehicle traveling at 20 mph is nearly two-thirds less likely to be killed compared to a pedestrian hit by a vehicle traveling 30 mph.
  • Keep your eyes on the road and your mind focused on driving. Pay attention while driving and eliminate dangerous distractions that can increase the risk of being involved in a collision. Store the cell phone out of reach to limit its use when you’re behind the wheel.
  • Come to a complete stop. More than one-third of drivers roll through stop signs in school zones or neighborhoods. Always come to a complete stop before proceeding.
  • Reverse responsibly. Check for children on the sidewalk, in driveways, in school parking lots and around your vehicle before slowly backing up.
  • Respect pedestrian crossing zones. More than 22,000 students in Washington State volunteer as AAA School Safety Patrollers to help protect their fellow classmates as they go to and from school. To help keep pedestrians safe when you’re approaching a crossing zone, make eye contact with patrollers to ensure maximum safety.
  • Watch for bicyclists. Slow down and allow at least three feet of passing distance between your vehicle and a bicyclist. Expert advice, videos and safety tips are available at ShareTheRoad.AAA.com.
  • Talk to your teen. Car crashes are the number one cause of teen fatalities, and most collisions involving a teen driver is because of inexperience or driver error. Get evidence-based guidance on teen driving, a parent-teen driving agreement and other helpful teen driving safety tips at Keys2drive.com.
  • Plan for extra time. Expect an increase in traffic around schools and more school buses on the road. Drive carefully and choose alternate routes to avoid school zones if possible, or plan ahead and allow for extra travel time.
  • Practice. Knowledge and practice of safe walking and biking around traffic is essential. Choose safe walking and bicycling routes and demonstrate the rules of the road with your children before school starts.
  • Use caution around stopped school buses. Be alert; children can be unpredictable as they load or unload the bus. Always follow the school bus flashing lights and the extended arm stop signals, and never pass a school bus on the right.

By exercising a little extra care and caution, drivers and pedestrians can co-exist safely in school zones.

Construction Zone Tips

  1. In any work zone along any road, major or minor, Expect the Unexpected. Normal speed limits may be reduced, traffic lanes may be changed, and people and vehicles may be working on or near the road.
  2. Diamond-shaped orange warning signs are posted in advance of road construction projects. Slow down! Be alert! Pay attention to the signs!
  3. In addition to other warning signs, a "flagger ahead" warning sign may be posted in the work zone. When you see this, stay alert and be prepared to obey the flagger's directions. In a work zone, a flagger has the same authority as a regulatory sign, so you can be cited for disobeying his or her directions.
  4. Stay calm. Work zones aren't there to personally inconvenience you. They're necessary to improve the roads for everyone.
  5. You may see flashing arrow panels or "lane closed ahead" signs. Merge as soon as possible. Don't zoom right up to the lane closure, then try to barge in - if everyone cooperates, traffic moves more efficiently. Motorists can help maintain traffic flow and posted speeds by moving to the appropriate lane at first notice of an approaching work zone.
  6. Slow down when the signs say to. A car traveling 60 m.p.h. travels 88 feet per second. If you're going 60 m.p.h., and you pass a sign that states, “Road Work 1,500 feet,” you'll be in that work zone in 17 seconds.
  7. The most common crash in a highway work zone is the rear-end collision, so remember to leave two seconds of braking distance between you and the car in front of you. The amount of space required to provide two seconds of stopping time will increase the faster you're driving!
  8. Keep a safe distance between your vehicle and traffic barriers, trucks, construction equipment and workers. Just like you, highway workers want to return home safely after each day's work.
  9. Some work zones - like line painting, road patching and mowing are mobile, moving down the road as the work is finished. Just because you don't see the workers immediately after you see the warning signs doesn't mean they're not out there. Observe the posted signs until you see the one that states you've left the work zone.
  10. Highway agencies use many different and varying ways to inform motorists about the location and duration of major work zones. Often, the agencies will suggest a detour to help you avoid the work zone entirely. Plan ahead, and try an alternate route.
