Work-zone Speeders Could Soon Get Tickets in the Mail Under Pennsylvania LawAuthor/Presenter: Venteicher, Wes
Pennsylvania state Senate passed the legislation that allows traffic cameras in work zones. Under the law, drivers would be ticketed for driving 11 miles per hour or more over the speed limit in active work zones on the Turnpike and on expressways. Speeders would get a warning for a first offense, a $75 ticket for a second offense, and a $150 ticket for any more offenses. The state Department of Transportation supported this legislation. Some drivers question the motives behind the law and others support the measure as a way to improve worker safety.
