TxDOT has started a year long program called Be Safe. Drive Smart, a public education and awareness effort aimed at saving lives and reducing crashes. The goal is to make drivers aware of their own unsafe driving habits. How a driver behaves and reacts behind the wheel can be the difference between a safe journey and a deadly crash.  So always pay attention to your driving, and slow down in work zones.
