Reminder: Fines Double in Work Zones

Road construction season continues, and drivers are reminded that fines for traffic violations are doubled when in construction zones. Driving through construction zones presents challenges to motorists, and increased speeds and unsafe driving habits put both road construction workers and motorists in danger. In fact, the Wisconsin State Patrol notes that three out of four people killed in work zone crashes are drivers and their passengers. Fines are double whether or not workers are present in a marked work zone. For a list of state road construction projects in our area, click on the link above.
