Speeders beware: Police watching on I-64
TOWN AND COUNTRY, Mo. (AP) -- The Missouri Department of Transportation and Town and Country police have a message for motorists on Interstate 64: Slow down and drive safely.
Starting Monday, MoDOT is implementing a "Travel Safe Zone" on eastbound I-64 in the area near where it intersects with Interstate 270 in west St. Louis County.
The goal is to reduce crashes at one of the St. Louis region's busiest highway intersections. The zone will be in place for one year.
Town and Country police will add patrols, and fines for speeders and reckless drivers will be doubled in the area between Mason and Ballas roads.
