Watch for “Road Closed” signs in Pennsylvania.
Under a recently-enacted law, Pennsylvania now imposes two (2) points on your license if convicted of failing to obey safety warning signs such as “Road Closed” and other Construction Zone signs. In addition to the assessment of points, the driver can be fined up to $250. If the infraction requires emergency responders dispatched, the maximum fine increases to $500 and the violator can be ordered to pay the costs of the emergency response.
If you have been charged with this, or any, traffic violation, contact an experienced attorney at MM&D now so that you know and understand your rights.
