BOGGS TOWNSHIP – Motorists traveling through Boggs Township in Clearfield County will be reminded to obey the posted speed limit.
The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced Monday the placement of a radar-controlled speed display sign on Route 322 between Poor Farm Lane and Blue Ball Road in West Decatur.
The sign will 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 322 is 55 miles per hour.
The sign was placed Wednesday, May 8, and will remain in that 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 49 percent of Clearfield County crashes in 2017.
