Orange Cones. No Phones. Employer Safety Please E-Toolkit

Take the Pledge

According to the 2010 Distracted Driving on the Capital Beltway Report, half of all distracted drivers say they use their phones on the road to address work-related issues – 57 percent of these drivers do so because they feel their employer expects an immediate response.

On November 18, 2010, Virginia Secretary of Transportation Sean T. Connaughton challenged organizations in Northern Virginia to take the Orange Cones. No Phones. Employer Safety Pledge – committing to take action to end distracted driving in construction work zones.

Join Transurban-Fluor, AAA Mid-Atlantic and other responsible employers in the Employer Safety Pledge.

Why Take the Pledge

Distracted driving is dangerous and a hot-button issue locally and nationally. Virginia law prohibits texting while driving. Construction in the region only makes distracted driving more dangerous.

Highlight your organization's commitment to the safety of your employees and all drivers by taking the pledge.

The Pledge

As an employer in Northern Virginia, we have the opportunity to demonstrate leadership in reducing distracted driving – specifically in construction zones. The Washington Metropolitan region is home to two of the largest transportation improvement projects currently under construction in the nation – the 495 Express Lanes Project and the Dulles Metrorail Project. Each day hundreds of thousands of people – including our employees – travel through these construction zones and more than half are distracted.

As responsible businesses, we are committed to the safety of our employees, area roadways and the community. As such, we are taking the Orange Cones. No Phones. Employer Safety Pledge to help eliminate distracted driving in construction zones.

We pledge to raise awareness among our employees about the dangers of distracted driving and discourage cell phone use while driving – specifically in construction zones.
