In any case what do you all think??????? Officers Pose As Construction Workers To Nab Speeders Operation Hardhat Is Statewide Program ORLANDO, Fla. -- Florida Highway Patrol officers posing as construction workers nabbed dozens of speeders in Orlando, Fla., Friday, according to Local 6 News. The new, statewide program, Operation Hardhat, kicked off in Central Florida at an accident-prone stretch of the Greeway near the University toll plaza. In the first hour, officers ticketed nearly two dozen drivers for speeding. "They're doing what they would normally do and we're just using some creative ways to catch them, it's perfectly legal," Florida Highway Patrol spokesman Chuck Williams said. Several of the motorist caught speeding in the construction zones face $500 tickets. Operation Hardhat will run for the ext year and extend into school zones as well, according to Local 6 News. Florida Highway Patrol officers said they hope to instill paranoia in drivers to get them to think that a trooper could be anywhere looking to catch them speeding. "You shouldn't be speeding," ticketed speeder Vicent Decicco said. "I used to work in construction and I had co-worker hit by a car that was speeding. It's a construction zone. You should be a little careful anyway," Watch Local 6 News for more on this story.
