LANSING, MI (WTVB) - As Michigan motorists prepare to hit the road this Memorial Day weekend with the unofficial start to summer, the state’s top utilities and others who work alongside those roads are reminding drivers to slow down in utility work zones. There was a special event yesterday on the steps of the State Capital to promote Michigan Roadside Safety Awareness and the need to Slow Down and Go Around.

State Senator Bruce Caswell and State Representative Ken Kurtz were there and so was Robin Creel. She was demonstrating her continuing support for roadside worker safety efforts as the widow of Consumers Energy journeyman line worker Jeff Creel, who was struck and killed by a vehicle while responding to a report of a downed power line near Jonesville in 2012.

As Creel and others looked on, Senator Caswell presented a proclamation declaring May 22, 2014 as Michigan Roadside Safety Awareness Day.
