Highway Patrol on Increased Traffic and Work Zones this Spring

(Jefferson County) Spring is knocking on the door and that means various road improvement projects are set to get underway at any time.

Corporal Juston Wheetley with the Missouri State Highway Patrol says troopers will be patrolling work zones frequently.

We asked Corporal Wheetley what’s the difference between getting pulled over for speeding outside a work zone versus getting pulled over in one.

In a bit of good news, traffic crashes involving fatalities in the state are down roughly 8 percent from what they were at this time in 2020.

So far there have been 120 fatal accidents on Missouri roads this year.
