Construction Zone Speed Enforcement
ARCHIVED PRESS RELEASE: Published 6-5-2014
Mingo Valley Traffic Unit Officers will be randomly monitoring
the construction zones in this area through the end of the month in
an effort to increase the safety of construction zone workers and
reduce traffic collisions in these areas. A citation issued
for speeding in a construction zone ranges from $150 to up to $500
and/or 10 days in jail; NO WARNINGS will be issued.
Drivers are reminded to remain alert, refrain from using all
electronic communication devices and to pay special attention to
all construction zone warning signs. Violation of
construction zone warning signs and speed limits is a leading cause
of injury collisions in construction zones. The Mingo Valley
Division Traffic Unit's goal is to reduce the frequency and
severity of collisions occurring in construction zones.
