Because there were no workers this is not as serious.
Either your spouse can plead not guilty, and take photos of the covered signs or if that is too late then have you testify as a witness or he can make a deal with the Crown where he can plead guilty to a lesser speed and not suffer as high fines and lose points.
Does that help?
Well the point is that they will likely agree to reduce the speed so he doesn't get any points so his licence will not be affected.
Speeding fines will range from $78 to $474, and $156 to $949 through construction zones so it will depend on whether they agree to a lesser speed and to agree that this was not in a construction zone as the signs were covered and no one was working.
It may be that he should hire representation so this approach to a deal or a trial is done correctly.
