PA drivers to see speed cameras in certain work zones in as little as 120 days

Pennsylvania drivers who decide to speed in certain work zones will now have more consequences than just a guilty conscience.

As of October 19th, a bill that would provide a five-year trial period for PennDOT to place speed cameras in active work zones was signed by Governor Wolf.

Sen. David Argall (R-Schuylkill) and Sen. Judy Schwank (D-Berks) had been working on getting Senate Bill 172 passed for two years. The bill passed through the House this September by a vote of 176-19 and then through the Senate earlier this month with just one no vote.
