Work zone ticket likely to be studied

The bill to do away with the $250 ticket for speeding in a work zone if workers aren’t present doesn’t appear likely to pass this year. Instead, it will be studied first.

That’s the decision the state House made early Thursday, agreeing to an amendment that accomplished that, and setting final approval for Monday.

Rep. Sarah Stevens, a Republican from Surry County, is the bill’s sponsor. She agreed to the study.
