If you are caught speeding in a construction zone in Georgia, be forewarned that the fine amounts can be double that of a regular ticket. Many drivers want to know if workers are not present in a construction zone, does this still apply? The answer is YES, as long as the speed limit is reduced, signs are posted with the reduced speed limit, and the area is a designated construction zone at the time you are caught speeding, an officer can give you the ticket and mark it as speeding in a construction zone even though workers are nowhere in sight!
Since many drivers look for the presence of workers in a construction zone to signal a speed decrease, know that this is not going to prevent a ticket from happening when it comes to a ticket issued for speeding in a construction zone in Georgia. It is the presence of the signs in the designated area that signal a construction zone and that will dictate both the speed limit and an increase in fines in the event you do receive a ticket.
