If you’re caught speeding in a construction zone, the fines can double based upon what the fine would be if you were not in a construction zone. The maximum fine can range up to $975, depending on the number of prior convictions, your driving record, and the speed you were going.
In addition, speeding tickets in a construction zone, like speeding in other cases, involves points and can sometimes involve a lot of them. There’s also a mandatory surcharge that the court is required to impose. If you receive a speeding ticket, particularly one in a construction zone, it is very important that you contact an attorney right away, who is familiar with speeding tickets in New York.
