About every three days a fatal work zone crash involving a large truck occurs in the U.S. That totals 133 truck-involved fatal work zone crashes each year, according to the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). Highway work zones are dangerous for all highway travelers but are particularly difficult for trucks, with narrowed, shifting lanes, reduced speeds and last-second merging by other vehicles, challenging even the best and most experienced truck driver.

Here are some tips to make it safely through:

· Read the signs

· Keep your distance

· Obey the reduced speed limit sign

· Merge safely and early

· Signal others what's ahead

· Watch out for workers

· Be patient
