According to a police report, drivers were clocked going 83, 84 and even 91 miles per hour in the short time police were there, even though the speed limit is 50 miles per hour.
“Drivers need to slow down and heed the warning signs for construction zones,” a police report said. “Workers along U.S. 19 even applauded and gave thumbs-ups to our officers as they stopped car after car for speeding. It can cost you $156 for going 1 to 9 miles per hour over the posted speed limit in a construction zone, $306 for 10 to 14 miles per hour over, $406 for 15 to 19 miles per hour over, $456 for 20 to 29 miles per hour and a mandatory court date for anything more than 30 miles per hour over. Please slow down and keep construction crews and others safe. U.S. 19 is not a race track.”
