Know the law and do your part. Help Nevada highway workers make it home to their families.


Construction zones demand heightened attention and caution from everyone. The AGC and our partners advocate for the following safe-driving practices within work zones:

  • Stay alert. Give your undivided attention to the road and your surroundings.

  • Put away all distractions. 

  • Keep your phone out of sight while driving.

  • Watch for and follow any posted signs.

  • Follow directions from construction workers and flaggers when signaled to do so.

  • Do not tailgate. Leave extra space between you and the vehicle in front of you.

  • Do not get behind the wheel if you’re impaired.

  • Use extra caution when changing lanes.

  • Watch your route carefully as traffic patterns can change frequently in construction zones.

  • Slow down. Be aware of reduced speed limits in work zones and respect them.

  • Anticipate delays and be patient.

  • When merging, use the zipper merge method to keep traffic flowing.

Dollar Bills

Penalties are Double in Work Zones

Being reckless will cost you. Nevada Revised Statute 484.3667 doubles the penalty for speeding, up to $1,000, in any marked road construction or maintenance work zone when workers are present.

Nevada Move Over Law

Nevada drivers must move over at least one lane for any emergency, government, or stalled vehicle. That includes construction vehicles and vehicles stopped on the side of the road with flashing amber or non-flashing blue lights. Learn more about the Nevada Move Over Law on NDOT’s website.
