PennDOT Places Speed Display Sign in McKean County

PennDOT Places Speed Display Sign in McKean County

Clearfield – Motorists on Route 770 (Warren Road) in Bradford Township, McKean County, will be reminded to obey the posted speed limit after PennDOT placed a radar-controlled speed display sign yesterday. The placement will raise awareness of the 20-mile-per-hour heavy truck speed limit in this area and aid in curbing a common type of aggressive driving. This speed limit applies to trucks weighing more than 21,000 pounds

The sign faces eastbound traffic. The speed display sign uses radar to determine the speeds of oncoming heavy truck traffic. Vehicle speeds are then posted on the lighted section of the sign.

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 more than 48 percent of McKean County crashes in 2012.
