WatchForUs | National Work Zone Awareness Week Campaign
The third week of April kicks off National Work Zone Awareness Week 2020 (NWZAW). To help combat distracted driving and improve work zone safety, NAPA developed the WatchForUs national public awareness campaign. This year, NAPA created a sheet of individual car window clings featuring various “stick figure” family members (and pets, too!) as well as separate hard hat and safety vest clings that can be affixed to the individuals. Build out your family on your rear window to help increase awareness of the WatchForUs message among the driving public. If you would like one or more sheets, complete this brief order form.
