Explanation of the new law
It's not a race, slow your pace.
Everyone has the right to a safe work place.
The new law, which took effect July 1, 2008, represents another step that Iowa is taking to protect the safety of highway workers, enforcement personnel and motorists.
Prior to July 1, scheduled fines for moving traffic violations committed in a road work zone were doubled. Under the new law, doubled fines continue to apply for moving violations other than speeding.
The law applies to state, county and city public roads, and both public road workers and road workers employed by contractors will benefit from increased safety.
