When you drive through a work zone, you should NOT

A increase your speed.

In work zones, driving slower or faster than the surrounding traffic is a major cause of rear-end collisions. (In North Carolina, fines for speeding are $250 higher in work zones.) Stay alert, obey the signs, keep up with traffic unless otherwise directed, and change lanes to leave more room for workers or equipment. Don't slow down suddenly, but be prepared to stop anytime.
