The Pennsylvania General Assembly passed a law to allow an Automated Work Zone Speed Enforcement (AWZSE) program in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Drivers who are traveling through an active work zone more than 11 mph over the marked speed limit will activate the automatic camera which will take a picture of their license plate. A violation notice is then prepared and mailed to the vehicle owner. The penalties are:
First offense – warning letter.
Second offense – violation notice and $75 fine.
Third (and subsequent) offense – violation notice and $150 fine.
Civil penalty only; no criminal penalty.
No points on license or impact to merit rating for insurance purposes.
Violations may be contested up to 30 days from the mailing of the notice.
