Speed Display Sign in Keating Township

Smethport, PA – Motorists traveling through Ormsby, McKean County, will be reminded to obey the posted speed limit on Route 59. The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) recently placed a radar-controlled speed display sign to aid in curbing speeding, a common type of aggressive driving.

The sign faces westbound traffic and utilizes radar to determine the speeds of oncoming traffic. Vehicle speeds are then posted on the lighted section of the sign. The posted speed limit in this area of Route 59 is 45 miles per hour.

The speed display sign is located east of Route 59 and Route 646 intersection and will remain on location, facing westbound traffic for up to two weeks. After that time the speed display sign will face eastbound traffic, and will be located west of Route 59 and Route 646 intersection for an additional two weeks.

PennDOT placed the sign in response to a request from Representative Martin Causer’s Office.

Speeding and other aggressive driving behaviors are among the leading causes of crashes and fatalities in Pennsylvania. Other aggressive driving behaviors include running stop signs or red lights, passing illegally and tailgating.

Aggressive driving behaviors were listed as a crash cause in 49 percent of McKean County crashes in 2015.
