Madison police are planning summer-long special enforcement on the West Beltline Highway starting Monday.

Madison police point to two multi-vehicle crashes that occurred during morning rush hours in the past week and say the area is congested and highly traveled.

Fines for speeding tickets start at $88.80 and can go as high as $429.00. They double in construction zones.

Police said drivers to be safe, follow traffic laws and avoid distractions behind the wheel.
