Slow Down Move Over

Hundreds of roadside work zones will be set up across BC this summer, and every day, tens of thousands of British Columbians work alongside our roadways: first responders, road builders, landscapers, flag people, tow truck operators and more.

Help us remind drivers to keep all roadside workers safe – please share this information (and supporting images) through your own communication channels  

  1. Slow down before reaching a Cone Zone and obey the posted speed limit.
  2. When entering a roadside work zone pay attention and avoid distractions. Leave your phone alone.
  3. Pay attention to temporary road signs, traffic cones and directions given by a traffic control person.
  4. Plan ahead.  Listen to traffic reports before and during your drive – and where possible – adjust your route to avoid work zones.
  5. When driving near work vehicles with flashing amber, red and blue lights, always Slow Down and Move Over. If the posted speed limit is greater than 80 km/h, slow to 70km/h. If the posted speed is less than 80 km/h, slow to 40 km/h. In both situations, move over if it’s safe to do so.

Thank you in advance – we really appreciate it!
