State Senate Approved Legislation to Allow Local Police to Use Radar
Tuesday, the Senate approved legislation that would allow local police departments to use radar to monitor speed. The bill would require municipalities to pass ordinances allowing the use of radar and post signs indicating that it is being used. The measure now heads to the House.
Why is this Important?
- Allegheny County Municipalities have long-advocated for the use of radar by municipal police for responsible speed timing technology.
- PA is the only state in the country whose local police cannot use this technology.
- Latest statistics published by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration indicate that PA has the worst record in the U.S. for speed-related fatalities.
The legislature has just three more voting days before its two-year session ends. Any bill that does not get passed and signed into law will have to be reintroduced in the next legislative session, which begins in January. ALOM members are encouraged to contact their State House members in an effort to encourage support for this long awaited legislation.
