PennDOT Places Speed Display Sign in McKean County

PennDOT Places Speed Display Sign in McKean County

Clearfield – Motorists on Route 46 in 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 40-mile-per-hour speed limit in this area and aid in curbing a common type of aggressive driving.

The sign is located in the village of Farmers Valley, facing northbound traffic. The speed display sign uses radar to determine the speeds of oncoming 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.

Learn more about aggressive driving at PennDOT’s highway safety website, www.JustDrivePA.com.

They could use one on West Main St changing into Route 59 going out of the Borough of Smethport

How about close the bars too? I believe alcohol figures into a lot of crashes! Surely there are better things to do in your life than become drunk every weekend. This comment should set the typical drinking culture afire in McKean County.

See what they should do with these things is hook them up to the internet and when someone comes speeding like one poster above that even tries to do this, then it takes a photo of their license plate which will allow the police to fine and take these poor drivers off the road.
