The American Traffic Safety Services Association (ATSSA) is hoping that in the near future a motorist cited by a police officer for speeding in a work zone will later be told in court by a judge to attend a refresher course that focuses on work-zone safety and awareness. ATSSA’s new “Work Zone Traffic Violator Awareness Program” was created with this very scenario in mind. ATTSA’s Roadway Safety Training Institute developed a detailed curriculum and an accompanying 90-minute CD-Rom to use in driver improvement programs. The course and materials contain information to help motorists become aware of work-zone hazards, while offering safe driving tips and steps motorists can take to ensure safe transit through roadway work zones.
