State Police Take Zero Tolerance Stance On Work Zone Speeders


State police have a message for drivers - don't try speeding through work zones.

Last year, the state counted close to 350 traffic accidents connected to work zones, including nine in the north country. 

If you don't obey work-zone speed limits, the fine is doubled.

Don't expect any mercy from troopers.

"What we'll be doing is taking a zero-tolerance stance against all violators," said Captain Darrin Pitkin of the state police.

Police are also reminding drivers about new laws requiring you to pull over for police and emergency vehicles.

That law has been expanded to include tow trucks and construction vehicles.
