Construction zone automated traffic control system

NMA Recommendation:
Oppose

UPDATE February 15, 2019: Committee scheduled a hearing on February 19, 2019.

The bill is assigned to the Senate Homeland Security and Transportation Committee. It is not yet scheduled for a hearing or vote.

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.
