Construction Zone Speeders Face PointsAbstract:
Beginning July 1, drivers ticketed for racing through construction zones face increased points on their driver record under a new law designed to crack down on those who flaunt work-zone speed limits, Secretary of State Candice S. Miller announced today.
Under Public Act 149 of 2002, the number of points assessed for speeding in a work zone increases from:
2 points to 3 points for speeding 10 mph or less over the posted limit
3 points to 4 points for speeding more than 10 mph but not more than 15 mph over the limit
4 points to 5 points for speeding more than 15 mph over the limit
