LEHI (ABC4 News)- Monday marked the start of the Utah Highway Patrol’s crackdown on speeding on I-15 in Lehi.
On the first day of the enforcement, UHP says they made 135 traffic stops and issued over 100 tickets. 54 warnings were also issued.
Troopers say people often drive over the 60 MPH speed limit in the construction zone, making it dangerous for workers.
Fines for speeding in a construction zone can be as high as $670 and require a mandatory appearance in court.
The extra patrols are expected to last through the week.
