Southwestern CT takes part in nationwide 'Don't Zone Out' campaign
With about 1,000 accidents in Connecticut roadwork zones each year, officials have opted to tackle the problem by taking part in a nationwide effort. "Don't Zone Out," a new nationwide campaign, is aimed at getting motorists to pay more attention and slow down in roadwork zones. Connecticut will take part in the campaign, which includes broadcasting television and radio road safety ads by the Federal Highway Administration. Last year, a state Department of Transportation worker was killed on the job in Norwalk. The accident happened on the Route 7 connector when a limo struck and killed Robert Mugford.
