Supporters say the system is needed in response to a steady rise in construction zone accidents, with the uptick in injuries involving both construction workers and motorists. The aim is to record license plates of speeding vehicles and generate automated tickets that would be sent in the mail.

The bill has received positive votes in both the state House and state Senate, with a final vote likely this week.

A spokesman for Governor Tom Wolf says he would sign the bill.
