Road repair crews often have to work on roads to keep them in good condition. This means you will sometimes come across heavy vehicles, machinery and workers on the road, which you must be careful around.

The road surface itself can also be dangerous when under repair, as it may be uneven or have new seal.

When you see a roadworks sign, always slow down and be ready to stop.


Crashes can happen when drivers ignore roadworks warning signs and temporary speed limits. Don’t take these warnings lightly. You don’t know what’s ahead, so slow down and take care.
