Senate Committee Approves Municipal Traffic RADAR
The Senate Transportation Committee gave initial approval to a measure to allow local police forces to enforce speed limits with RADAR. A similar bill was approved last year but was not passed by the legislature. Pennsylvania is the last remaining state that only allows State Police units to enforce speed with RADAR. The bill is sponsored by Republican Senator Mario Scavello and also includes a cap on the amount of money from tickets that can be used to fund police forces.
