Just an hour and a half after setting up police had already pulled over 20 drivers for speeding in a Cumberland County work zone.
The East Pennsboro Township Police Department conducted aggressive driving enforcement on Friday, Aug. 23, near the Route 11/15 work zone, Enola, as part of a Special Aggressive Driving Enforcement Project.
If drivers caught going 11 mph or more over the posted speed limit in a work zone they face a 15-day license suspension, in addition to fines and points on your license.
The project is funded by a portion of PennDOT’s statewide investment of federal funds, and the department will be focusing on motorists who are speeding through the work zone. East Pennsboro is one of nine municipal police departments in Cumberland, Dauphin, Lancaster and York counties that were awarded special grants to address local aggressive driving concerns.
This effort will run until Sept. 30 on roadway segments where aggressive driving has been identified as a traffic safety issue.
