PennDOT Places Speed Display Sign in Liberty

penndotDUBOIS, Pa. – Motorists traveling east of the village of Liberty, Clearfield County, will be reminded to obey the posted speed limit on Route 322 (Behringer Highway).

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation recently placed a radar-controlled speed display sign east of Route 119 (Blinker Parkway) and Route 322 (Behringer Highway) intersection. The speed display board is to aid in curbing speeding, a common type of aggressive driving.

The sign faces eastbound 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 55 miles per hour.

The speed display sign will remain on location, facing eastbound traffic for up to 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.

Aggressive driving behaviors were listed as a crash cause in 50 percent of Clearfield County crashes in 2015.
