Construction Zones Fines---Watch out!!!

IDOT, Tollway and State Police Warn Drivers to Prepare for
Highway Construction Season

New tools this year include increased fines, loss of license and photo enforcement


CHICAGO—The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) joined with the State Police and Illinois Tollway to remind motorists construction season is about to kick in to gear and warn that tough new laws are on the books that target drivers who flout work zone speed limits and endanger the lives of construction workers and other drivers.

“Next week is Work Zone Safety Week and the traditional beginning to highway construction season. We want to send a message to motorists now to slow down in work zones,” IDOT Secretary Timothy W. Martin said. “If you are caught speeding in a work zone, at minimum you will be looking at a fine of $375, at worst, you can kill yourself, a loved one or a worker.”

Under enhanced penalties passed by the Legislature and signed into law by Gov. Rod Blagojevich last year, first-time work zone speeders, including those caught on camera, will be hit with a fine of $375, with $125 of that sum going to pay off-duty State Troopers to provide added enforcement in construction or maintenance zones. Two-time offenders are subject to a $1,000 fine, including a $250 surcharge to hire Troopers, and the loss of their license for 90 days.

Starting in July, State Troopers will deploy specially equipped vans that can take photographs of drivers speeding in IDOT and Tollway construction and maintenance zones. Tickets will be issued by mail to vehicle owners.

So when will they start taking photographs of drivers speeding on the road, not just construction zones, I think they can use the slogan, DO SMILE AND DRIVE CAUSE THE STATE GAT YOUR MUG SHOT and will be happy to Email you the pic for faster processing for speeding 1 MPH over the limit, WELCOME TO THE FUTURE BOYS AND GIRLS and if the budget will be as bad as this year, I think that will be a nice way to plug the hole.

Not any trooper, OFF DUTY troopers. How exactly are these troopers being paid? Is it strictly from tickets?
