The Alabama Senate passed a bill on Thursday, March 4th that would expand existing law regarding moving violations in designated construction zones created by ALDOT or County transportation departments. Senate Bill 4 is sponsored by Senator Gerald Allen, R-Tuscaloosa and increases the moving violation fine to be “the greater of $250. or double the amount prescribed by law outside a construction zone”. The bill will now go the House as HB245 sponsored by Rep. Lynn Greer.
