BRADFORD TOWNSHIP – Motorists traveling through Bradford Township, Clearfield County, will be reminded to obey the posted speed limit.
The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) has announced the placement of a radar-controlled speed display sign on Route 322 near the intersection of Route 970. 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 45 miles per hour.
The sign was placed July 13 and will remain in its location for up to four weeks. It will then be turned to face eastbound traffic for an additional 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.
