GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (AP) - Motorists on some stretches of northwest Colorado highways will be slapped with doubled fines when caught speeding under a resumed effort to cut down on collisions with wildlife.

The Daily Sentinel reports (https://bit.ly/1MM6R4Y ) that the Colorado Department of Transportation announced Wednesday that it is reinstating increased fines in wildlife zones. Fines will be doubled for nighttime speeding during the migrations season from October through May.

CDOT suspended wildlife zones for a year while officials considered their efficacy.

The doubled fines will apply on Colorado Highway 13, from mile points 28 to 38 between Rifle and Meeker and 58 to 88 southwest of Craig. They also will apply from miles 93 to 103 on U.S. Highway 40 east of Craig, and miles 31 and 36 between Basalt and Aspen on Colorado Highway 82.
