Prepare for August 21 eclipse with roadway safety tips
Did you know that the total eclipse is occurring during peak construction season? Take precautions driving on Monday with this short video from the Federal Highway Administration.
For those of us who might not be lucky enough to sit back and enjoy the show this coming Monday, the FHWA recently made a video reminding drivers to be careful during the eclipse. It may be tempting to take your eyes off the road and watch the sun, but construction zones, safety devices and lane closures will still be roadway hazards.
On their website, the FHWA provides additional tips for safe driving on Monday. These include:
- Exiting the highway to find a safe viewing location
- Turning your headlights on before, during and after totality
- Watching out for pedestrians on this high-profile day
- Preparing for extra roadway congestion
You can visit FHWA for more safety advice as well as links to state-specific information about eclipse viewing times.
