Go Orange Day

By  | 

You have probably seen a lot of orange while driving on the roads today.

April 10th is "Go orange" day.

Everyone who works in road safety is being asked to wear orange today.

The day is part of national work zone awareness week.

One company participating in Wednesday's effort was Consumers Energy.

"Unfortunately some of the most hazardous conditions they (company employees) face on a daily basis are speeders and distracted drivers and that's something that we can do something about," said Terry DeDoes, a company spokesperson.

This campaign is held annually at the start of construction season.

It is aimed to encourage safe driving through road work zones.
