01/22/2020 -- STEPPED-UP WORK ZONE SAFETY ENFORCEMENT NOW UNDERWAY!

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation announced that the required 60-day pre-enforcement period for the state’s Automated Work Zone Speed Enforcement program ends March 4.

The program uses vehicle-mounted systems to detect and record drivers who exceed the posted speed limits in work zones using electronic speed-timing devices.

Local work zones that will be monitored under the new program include:

Interstate 476 Total Reconstruction (Mileposts 31-38), Montgomery County

US 1, Section RC1, Bucks County

Interstate 276, Section RC1, Bucks County

US 1, Section WAV (Wayne Avenue Viaduct), Philadelphia

The AWZSE program was established by the Pennsylvania General Assembly in Act 86 of 2018. During the pre-enforcement period, automated speed enforcement units will be deployed in active work zones, but violations will not be issued and no points will be assessed to the driver's license.

AWZSE systems are only operational in active work zones where workers are present. Once enforcement begins on March 4, registered owners will receive a warning letter for a first offense, a violation notice and $75 fine for a second offense, and a violation notice and $150 fine for third and subsequent offenses.
