When you're driving through a work zone, you should NOT

A increase your speed.

Work zones can be hazardous. In work zones, driving slower or faster than the surrounding traffic is a major cause of rear-end collisions. (In New Mexico, fines for speeding may be doubled in a work zone. If so, there should be signs informing you of this.) Stay alert, be ready for the unexpected, obey the signs, keep up with traffic unless otherwise directed, and change lanes to leave more room for workers or equipment. Do not slow down suddenly, but be prepared to stop anytime. [NM Stat § 66-7-301]
