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.
