Speed Limits and Work Zones

Work Zones

Since January 1998 motorists in Texas, and almost all other states, can receive double fines for speeding in work zones.

Texas experiences the largest number of annual work zone fatalities in the country. In 1998, the first year the law went into effect, there were 125 people killed in construction work zones.

The double-fine law was implemented to increase the incentive for motorists to slow down in work zones, thus increasing safety for workers who maintain and improve Texas roads, as well as other motorists.

The law in Texas is that all moving vehicle violations within the zone, when workers are present, will cause the minimum and maximum original fines to be doubled.
