Speeding in a Work Zone

Work zones are designated areas on the highway wherein construction or some other maintenance function is being executed by state employees or contractors of the state. The work zone must be designated through signage. If you are convicted of speeding in a work zone, there is an automatic $250.00 fine associated with the work zone violation in addition to the cost of court. Furthermore, for whatever reason, work zone tickets can be paid off through the mail regardless of whether the speed at which you were charged is high enough to revoke your license. This causes many people to believe that the ticket isn’t that big of a deal and results in a relatively high percentage of suspensions.
