SB 0256 would authorize the state police department to establish an automated traffic control system to enforce highway work zone speed limits. It would provide that violating a speed limit enforced in a work zone enforced by an automated traffic control system is a Class B infraction with a fine of not more than $250.

The NMA is opposed to the use of speed cameras. Proper advance warning to motorists of a work zone ahead and smooth transitioning of lanes through the construction zone is safer than after-the-fact, revenue-driven ticket cameras.
