According to NETS for every three days a teen is killed and seven are injured in a work zone crash. Vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for teenagers.
Work Zones is the place where maximum number of crashes happen thereby resulting in hazardous driving, putting the driver, passengers, and work zone personnel at risk.
Recent researches show that teenagers are the most likely to get involved in work zone accidents because of their risk-taking behavior, negative driving habits, distraction while driving and lack in basic driving skills.
