Florida has strict laws in place for drivers that fail to practice proper safety measures when they are in a work or construction. Back in 2016, the Florida Department of Transportation reported high numbers of fatalities that occurred in construction zones.
In construction zone crashes, as a result of the costs involved, usually double fines are levied when drivers are caught violating the rules of such zones, especially if there are workers present. These violations can be caused by dangerous practices that frequently occur in construction areas, including driving beyond speed limits, merging the moment a lane ends, driving distracted, and failing to slow down when an emergency vehicle is on the side of the road.
Speeding fines in work zones can be heavy and the violations can also lead to driving record points being received. If you receive a citation for a violation in a construction zone, an experienced traffic ticket lawyer may be able to assist in lowering the charges or potentially completely dismissing your case.
