INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Some Indiana lawmakers want to authorize the installation of work zone speed cameras along the state’s highways to photograph speeding cars and fine the lead-footed motorists.
The (Northwest Indiana) Times reports that members of the General Assembly's Interim Study Committee on Transportation advanced a plan Wednesday to authorize using the traffic cameras.
The panel will decide later this month whether to officially recommend that Indiana’s Republican-controlled Legislature consider making Indiana the sixth state with work zone speed cameras.
State Rep. Chuck Moseley, a committee member who proposed a failed automated enforcement bill in the last House Session, says he’s determined to get the measure passed in 2020.
State records show work zone collisions increased to 6,370 in 2017 from 2,878 collisions in 2013.
