DOT Partners with NASCAR for Safe Digging Month

“Call 811” message will be displayed on vehicles for over 30 races.

“The Department of Transportation (DOT) announced a new partnership with NASCAR on Tuesday to promote National Safe Digging Month during April 2023. “Call 811” will be displayed on NASCAR vehicles, fire, and pit crew suits for more than 30 races during their 2023 season, encouraging Americans to call 811 for more information about areas they wish to dig. The national one-call number informs homeowners and contractors about hidden electrical lines and plumbing lines at their locations, helping them avoid inconvenient and potentially dangerous damages to public utilities.

“Whether you’re doing construction on your property or simply putting in a new mailbox, digging without contacting 811 can have serious consequences for your family and community,” said Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg. “This National Safe Digging Month, and every month, remember to always contact 811 before you dig.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • That this initiative helps spread awareness for underground utilities this April.
  • That this partnership benefits NASCAR, the DOT, and all Americans wishing to begin home improvement projects.
  • For wisdom for administration officials as they help organize life in an interconnected society.
