Work Zone Speed Cams Are Now a Reality in PA.

 

Senate bill 172 passed the house & senate. It's now on the way to the governors desk who has indicated he will sign it.

The new law makes it an offense for any vehicle to travel more than 11 mph over the posted work zone speed limit. First offenders receive a written warning. A second offense will cost $75. A third will get you a $150 fine. The revenue generated will go into a fund to further support highway safety.

I'm not normally a fan of "big brother" watching over me but I make an exception in this case. It's a fact that motorists travel too fast in work zones in this state and there have been many incidents of highway workers being killed or injured. Hopefully, the new law will have a positive impact on these statistics.

The Bill, SB 172 started out as a bill for work zones throughout Pennsylvania specifically. Roosevelt Blvd. [in Philadelphia] was added on during the legislative process as a "pilot" program. [11 cams slated for use] The bill passed both the House and Senate and awaits the Governors signature which he said he would give.

The first violation will be a warning.

The second violation will be $75.

Each violation after will be $150.

The registered owner of the vehicle will get the ticket. If they can prove they were not driving the vehicle at the time of the violation the ticket will be revoked. Any/all violations are a no point violation.

For the entire final text of the bill see here:
