Editorial: Take the hint; slow down in work zones this summerMotorists who zip through highway work zones face double fines if they are stopped for speeding. That would seem enough to end all careless driving in these areas, but for some reason, it’s not.
Perhaps that’s why South Dakota Transportation Secretary Darin Bergquist has spent time in recent days urging people to slow down as they pass through work zones along the state’s roads and highways. With spring comes road construction season in South Dakota, and we have little doubt that some people still don’t heed the slower speed limits while passing through those dangerous areas.
