Transurban FY18 Sustainability Report

FY18 Sustainability Report Transurban 20

Safer roads

Case study Orange Cones. No Phones

Transurban, the Virginia Department of Transportation, Virginia State Police and AAA Mid-Atlantic, launched the “Orange Cones. No Phones.” campaign to reduce distracted driving within the 395 Express Lanes work zone. A Transurban-led survey of more than 1,000 Washington D.C. area drivers who travel the I-395 corridor shows they self-report engaging in a number of distractions while behind the wheel. The top three mobile phone distractions reported among D.C. area drivers were using a phone to talk, checking GPS or travel planning, and reading a text message. More than half of the area's drivers report feeling unconcerned about using their phones to talk while behind the wheel, despite growing research that finds talking on a mobile phone is still dangerously distracting. The “Orange Cones. No Phones.” campaign aims to improve safety by reducing distracted driving within the 395 Express Lanes work zone.
