WV Kicks Off Work Zone Awareness Week

Author: John/Tuesday, April 18, 2023/Categories: News

Governor Justice, along with state and federal officials and the CAWV, kicked off Work Zone Awareness Week at the State Capitol on Monday April 17, 2023.  All the participants emphasized the desire for all workers and travelers to be mindful and careful this year especially through the many work zones that will cover our state.

Justice said in remarked “Is it too much to ask that workers, men and women across this great, great, great state, deserve to be able to get their dinner bucket and go to work but they also deserve to go home safely?” 

"Our goal is zero fatalities in our work zones. This is the most important thing we will ever do," said Secretary Jimmy Wriston as he discussed the Work Zone Safety Committee's action plan to achieve zero fatalities.


"We're all here today because we want to save lives," Transportation Enforcement Officer at Public Service Commission of West Virginia Matthew Epling said. “We are all always in a hurry, but saving a little time is never worth another person's life."  Epling and WV State Trooper Sumner Brody both discussed the importance of obeying the posted speed limits as well as not driving distracted.  Trooper Brody declared that "if you're pulled over in one of our work zones, you can expect a citation. You need to slow down."

Jason Pizatella, CAWV CEO, summed up the briefing with “our ask is simply this: Slow down, obey the posted work zone speed limit and always stay alert.  Let’s do our part to make sure these men and women get to work and then back home to their families.”

Stay safe this year!!
