Help teen drivers safely navigate work zones

It also covers how to understand work zone devices, pavement markings and mobile operations. mobile operations.

In the first year of its adoption in Oklahoma, more than 12,000 Oklahoma teens representing more than 250 high schools took part in the work zone safety program.
