Lawmakers Look to Reduce Work Zone Crashes


(WBRE/WYOU) Keeping road crews safe that’s the goal of a new state bill.
The senate approved a  bill to add speed cameras to work zones.
It was introduced by Senator David Argall from Schuykill County.

If a driver is caught speeding in a construction zone, they could face an additional $100 fine.
Senators hope the cameras will reduce the number of crashes and fatalities  from reckless driving and speeding.
Last year.. there were more than 2,000 crashes and 16 fatalities in work zones.
