State troopers are increasing their presence at work zones in response to recent deaths and close calls on Maryland highways. “Motorists will notice an increased police presence in and around active work zones throughout Maryland. Emergency lights on police vehicles will be activated when working stationary assignments to provide an even higher level of visibility,” Major Scott Keyser of the Maryland State Police said at a news conference to mark National Work Zone Awareness Week Tuesday outside State Highway Administration offices.
