Road construction zone safety bill dies in Senate

Local News

INDIANAPOLIS — A bill that would have required cameras at all active road construction zones throughout the state died in the Senate Tuesday.

This is the second year author Sen. Jon Ford (R-Terre Haute) pushed the bill that would have implemented an Automated Traffic Control System Pilot Program.

“To put it simply, there were not enough votes today for Senate Bill 268 to pass the Indiana Senate, and the chair of the House Committee on Roads and Transportation was not likely to hear the bill,” Ford said in a written statement. “While I’m disappointed in the outcome this session, I intend to continue pushing for legislation that protects Hoosier workers in construction zones and the drivers who pass through these sites.”
