Speeding In a Work Zone

Philadelphia Lawyer for Speeding in a Work Zone

Speeding in a work zone can be costly. Pennsylvania roads are constantly being worked on and improved. Work zones in the state have additional protections, in the form of stiffer penalties for moving violations. Specifically, the Work Zone Safety Law governs penalties for drivers violating the rules of the road in a work zone.

The Work Zone Safety Law doubled the fines for most moving violations within active work zones, including speeding, failure to obey traffic control devices, and driving under the influence. As a result, anytime you are caught speeding in an active work zone, you can expect significant fines and costs.

The fines and costs associated with a citation are only the beginning. If you are convicted of driving 11 miles per hour or more above the posted speed in a work zone, your license will be suspended for a minimum of 15 days. Additionally, if you are involved in an accident in an active work zone and are convicted of failing to drive at a safe speed, you will also receive a minimum license suspension of 15 days.

Should I Get a Lawyer to Handle My Case?

According to PennDOT, in 2014, 377 suspensions were handed out due to speeding in a work zone. This number likely seems low because many people hire an attorney to handle their case.

A Lawyer can help to establish a defense to the case. For example, all active work zones must be clearly identified as such. An attorney can help show that the area was not clearly marked, or that it was not an active work zone at the time. All of this makes the difference between a license suspension or just a fine. Additionally, a lawyer can help reduce the ticket to one that does not carry a suspension or points.

Our attorneys have decades of experience handling these types of tickets, and offer free consultations to all prospective clients. Please call The Law Offices of Greg Prosmushkin today to have us work on your case.
