Pandemic Has Lead To An Increase In Mainers Caught For Speeding
According to WABI TV, the Maine State Police are reporting an increased amount of traffic stops for speeding.
We're not just talking about people going a few miles per hour over the limit. There's been a significant jump in the amount of people caught for criminal speeding - where someone is going at least 30 MPH over the limit. Also on the rise is the number of people stopped for speeding in construction zones, which carries double the normal fine.
Law enforcement officers warn that, even though we're going through a pandemic, they are still patrolling Maine's roads and highways.
