On Monday (4/10/23), the State of Connecticut launched a new program to make construction zones safer. Law enforcement agenices have installed speed cameras in construction zones on I-95 and I-84. A police officer doesn't even need to catch you speeding. These cameras will record vehicle information as you drive and if you're found in violation, you could be in trouble.

On your first offense, you'll receive a written warning, the second offense is $75 and the third will cost you $150. To be fair, most of us will be in good shape because you'll only be found in violation if you travel 15 mph over the posted speed limit. No one should be driving 16, 18 or 25 mph through a construction zone where humans are inches away from cars trying to work. Let's try and be human beings here, can we please?

Fun Fact about Speed Limits, CT was the first state in our great nation to have speed limits. The original speed limit was 12 miles per hour and was enacted in 1901.
