[GRAPHIC=I-81 Safety Corridor]

It's been more than a year since drivers on interstate 81 were put on notice, slow down or pay up.
The idea was to impose heftier fines on speeders by creating a highway safety corridor.
So has it worked? [***SAFETY CORRIDOR GRAPHIC IN MONITOR***]

Justin McLeod is here now with an answer. So Justin what are the results?
Jean, it's really hard to say.

In fact, in a recent phone survey only half of the residents in western Virginia are aware of the highway safety corridor.
