What’s Driving You Crazy: Construction zone tailgaters

Posted: Updated:

Tailgaters in the Interstate 10 and Ina construction zone - that's what's driving you crazy this week.

Kaitlyn said, "People think it's okay to go 65 (mph) ... and then tailgate you or speed recklessly in front of you when you don't do the speed they want you to do."

We talked to Arizona Department of Public Safety for you.

From the start of interchange construction on February 15th until this week, troopers issued nearly 250 tickets. Five tickets were given out for people following too closely.

At the start of construction, there were nine crashes on I-10. Eight of those were non-injury crashes and one was an injury wreck. Luckily, DPS has not seen an increase in crashes since then.

DPS troopers want to remind you if you're stopped for speeding in a construction zone, the fine goes up!

What else is driving you crazy? Let Melanie Hunter know here.
