Take the Highway Challenge... and Arrive Home Safely

Today, July 5, is a holiday for many area commuters. Roadways will be heavy with travelers coming home from the July 4 holiday weekend.

VDOT wants everyone to arrive safely to their destination. Statistics show that drivers who follow several standard rules of the road have fewer crashes and reduce the risk of serious injury if a crash occurs.

VDOT and Loudoun County Traffic urge drivers to take the Highway Safety Challenge, which includes:
  • Buckle up
  • Obey speed limits
  • Avoid distractions
  • Share the road
  • Drive drug- and alcohol-free
