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.
