Speed Display Sign Placed on Route 872 in Costello, Potter County

Coudersport, PA – Motorists traveling through the village of Costello in Potter County will be reminded to obey the posted speed limit on Route 872 (Austin Road). 

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) has placed a radar-controlled speed display sign along the northbound lane of Route 872 between Portage Road and First Fork Road in Costello. The speed display board is to aid in curbing speeding, a common type of aggressive driving.

The sign faces northbound 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 872 is 35 miles per hour.

The speed display sign was placed today, August 9. It will remain at this location for up to four weeks.

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 54 percent of Potter County crashes in 2016.

The other "major causes" of accidents is "just plain stupidity."
Following-too-close: I can spell "stupid."
Rolling through a "Stop" sign: I can spell "stupid."
Yes, "passing illegally" is "illegal," but only if you get caught by the GeStaPo.

Keep it up folks and they will relabel these offenses to terrorist driving and you will be in their cross hairs.
