Road commissions recognizing National Work Zone Safety Awareness Week

Posted: Updated:

Road commissions across the country this week are recognizing National "Work Zone Safety Awareness Week."

The main focus of the initiative is to get people off their cell phones while driving, especially through work zones.

The Wexford County Road Commission says "It happens so often that they have made a sculpture from the crushed safety barrels that drivers have run into over the years".

The commission says the biggest problem is still texting while driving. 

The Road Commission calls the sculpture "Captain Safety."
