At MDOT, safety is paramount. It is our goal to improve overall safety for all road users, internal staff, contractors performing work on roads, and emergency responders. We continue to work with MDOT partners to seek out innovative ideas and ways to keep Michigan’s road users and workers safe. Our ultimate vision is Toward Zero Deaths (TZD) on Michigan roadways.
Featured Safety Item:
Wrong Way Warning System is designed to help prevent motorists from driving the wrong way on freeways. Cameras in the system detect when a car is driving toward it; when that happens, high-intensity red LED flasher lights mounted on each of the wrong way signs are activated, warning drivers that they are going the wrong way.
