Broward Sheriff’s Office Deputy Tony Morales is interviewed by a TV news crew from Spanish language channel Telemundo 51 on the Sawgrass Expressway on February 6th. Operating a Laser to determine motorists’ speeds is BSO Sgt. Allen Adkins, in the background. The BSO Regional Traffic Enforcement Unit and Florida Highway Patrol Troop L- Davie and Troop K-Broward Turnpike launched the joint enforcement effort in March, 2008.

Nearly two dozen deputies and troopers participated in the speed and “Move Over Law” effort in western Broward on the Sawgrass Expressway and along Interstate 75 in Weston. Statewide, as of February 1, the fines for traffic infractions have increased. In Broward County, a Move Over Law violation now carries a fine of $150.00, up from $122.50. Speeding fines vary based on the number of miles over the limit, but now run $265.00 for exceeding the limit by 20 miles.
