|PennDOT Moves Speed Display Sign to New Location in Lock Haven|
Lock Haven – PennDOT is continuing its drive to raise awareness for one of the most common types of aggressive driving behavior in the city of Lock Haven. Recently, a speed display sign was placed near the entrance to the Lock Haven Catholic School on eastbound Route 120 (West Water Street). The board had previously been in place on a different section of Route 120 in the city.
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. This area of Route 120 is a 25-mile-per-hour zone.
The speed display sign will remain on location for a period of time and then be relocated to face westbound traffic.
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.
