Bill allowing Indiana highway work zone cameras moves forward

MNC 95.3

INDIANAPOLIS — A bill allowing highway work zone speed cameras in Indiana is moving forward as the full House recently voted to approve the measure, which had been up for discussion for years.

According to WVPE, Representative Jim Pressel, the bill’s sponsor, says the measure would allow for speed cameras in four work zones in the state.

The cameras would allow for speeding tickets to be issued to drivers captured on camera going at least 11 miles per hour over the speed limit when workers are present.

While the first offense would be a warning, the second would be $75. Every ticket after that would be $150.

The bill now heads to the Senate.
