"We want people to remember when they're driving through a construction zone, that the people that are out there working are somebody's son and daughter -- and they need to slow down," DeMoss said.
Less than three months since losing their son, the DeMoss family has teamed up with contractors for a motorcycle ride to raise awareness about the importance of driving safely through construction zones.
"Everybody gets in such a hurry, but there's no place you need to be that's worth someone's life," DeMoss said.
The family said they are speaking out for other members of their family -- including their oldest son who also works in the industry -- and for Coty’s work family who they say he loved.
"I feel that our son would want us to be behind this and expect us to be behind this … we don't want this to happen to somebody else," DeMoss said.
The Construction Safety Awareness Ride will take place Aug. 3. Click here for more information and to register for the ride.
