Camera system will detect speeding in some Pennsylvania work zones

Automated camera systems will measure vehicle speeds and snap photos of vehicle license plates. Drivers exceeding the posted speed limit by 11 mph or more in active work zones will get a warning in the mail for a first offense and will be ticketed for $75 and $150 fines for second and third offenses.

But don’t expect the camera systems on every state highway and byway.

The state expects to roll out just two of the automated speed enforcement systems this year and has not decided where they will be placed, said Jill Harry, spokeswoman for the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation in northwestern Pennsylvania.
