Traffic signs get personal

Citizen Staff Writer

Motorists zipping through construction zones continue to be a problem in Pima County despite a personal appeal to obey slower speed limits, officials said.

“It’s a constant problem because people don’t pay attention,” said Sgt. James Ogden of the Pima County Sheriff’s Department. “Unfortunately, no matter how personal you get, people just don’t pay attention.”

The speed limit in construction zones is 25 mph and speeding fines are $250, Ogden said.

Part of the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety, the signs urge people to drive slowly because someone’s mommy or daddy is working, said Annabelle Quihuis, spokeswoman for the Pima County Department of Transportation.

“It brings forth an awareness,” she said. This sign is near River Road and Alvernon Way.

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
