WORK ZONE SAFETY
The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) and the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission (PTC) announced that the required 60-day pre-enforcement period for the statewide Automated Work Zone Speed Enforcement (AWZSE) program has begun and will last until March 4.
Pennsylvania’s AWZSE program uses vehicle-mounted systems to detect and record motorists exceeding posted work zone speed limits using electronic speed timing devices. The goal is to protect the lives of motorists, passengers and highway workers.
During the pre-enforcement period, automated speed enforcement units will be deployed in active work zones, but violations will not be issued. Work zones are selected to maximize the effectiveness of the systems and will be marked with signage in advance of the enforcement area. Additionally, locations are posted on the project website, workZoneCameras.PennDOT.gov.
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. These violations are civil penalties only; no points will be assessed to driver’s licenses.
In 2018, there were 1,804 work zone crashes in Pennsylvania, resulting in 23 fatalities. Since 1970, PennDOT has lost 89 workers in the line of duty. The PA Turnpike has lost 45 workers since 1945.
PennDOT & STATE POLICE URGE MOTORISTS TO STEER CLEAR...
Section 3327 of the Vehicle Code requires motorists when approaching or passing an emergency response area, unless otherwise directed, to:
- Pass in a lane not adjacent to that of the emergency response area, if possible.
- If passing in a nonadjacent lane is not possible, illegal or unsafe, pass the emergency response area at a careful and prudent reduced speed reasonable for safely passing the emergency response area.
In summary, if you are approaching a police vehicle, ambulance, tow truck or other emergency response vehicle that is pulled over onto the shoulder of the road, move over to the adjacent lane if you can do so safely. If you cannot switch lanes safely, then slow down as much as possible.
The penalty for violation is a fine up to $250,000, court costs and a 90-day driver's license suspension. Due to safety concerns, the Pennsylvania State Police are making a concerted effort to enforce this section of the vehicle code.
