License Plate Sales to Benefit Children of Fallen Highway Workers: ARTBA-Affiliate Associated Pennsylvania Constructors Launches Roadway Work Zone Safety InitiativeAbstract:
The American Road & Transportation Builders Association’s (ARTBA) state contractor affiliate-the Associated Pennsylvania Constructors (APC)-is launching a new public awareness campaign to help improve safety in roadway work zones and directly benefit the children of highway workers killed on the job. APC has developed license plates with the message “Slow Down! Highway Workers” and has asked its members to outfit their construction fleets with them. The plates were designed at the direction of the APC/PennDOT Joint Safety Committee to educate motorists about the need to drive responsibly in highway work zones.
