  • keep within the speed limit – it is there for your safety.
  • get into the correct lane in good time – don’t keep switching.
  • concentrate on the road ahead, not the roadworks.
  • be alert for works’ traffic leaving or entering roadworks.
  • keep a safe distance – there could be queues in front.
  • observe all signs – they are there to help you
