UNION GAP, Wash. -- You might have noticed something different at the Valley Mall roundabout. The Cabela's fisherman is sporting a new vest.

WSDOT officials dressed him in an orange safety vest. It's a reminder to drivers to slow down in work zones.

The effort coincides with National Work Zone Safety Awareness Week. Drivers caught speeding in work zones can face double the fines and jail time.
