Letter Writer Expresses Opinions on Highway Bills

Share

 

A reminder to the Pennsylvania Legislature:

There is no crisis of speeders, red light runners,  drivers mowing down school bus riders, nor drivers generally running amok.  Even PennDOT says that Pennsylvania’s roads are the safest they have ever been.

Festering in assorted committees,  are various anti-driver/anti-safety bills:  putting ineffective and inaccurate speed cameras in highway work zones; putting ineffective and inaccurate speed cameras on Roosevelt Boulevard in Philadelphia as a prelude to blanketing the state with speed cameras; giving RADAR and LIDAR to local cops. Solely to raise revenue for government by unfairly stealing money from safe drivers.  None of these bills will make the highways safer, in fact, they may make the highways more dangerous.

Using best practice highway engineering, not your corrosive/punitive self-serving legislation, will make Pennsylvania’s roads safer and save lives, and do it for free.  Setting speed limits at the safest speed, i.e., the 85th Percentile Speed; designing work zones for safety; synchronizing the Boulevard’s signals and putting the cross walks underground.  Give these a try and jettison the revenue raising bills listed below:

Oppose speed cameras in work zones:  VOTE NO on SB 172 and HB 1748
Oppose speed cameras on Roosevelt Blvd.(US 1) in Philadelphia: VOTE NO on  HB 1187
Oppose school bus stop-arm cameras: VOTE NO on  HB 540
Oppose a related bill which requires school buses to install surveillance cameras, both inside and outside the bus: VOTE NO on  HB 744
Oppose municipal police RADAR (some also allow LIDAR for all police): VOTE NO on  HB 43, SB 251, SB 279, HB 970, HB 1290.
The elections are not that far away, and drivers have long memories: we follow the money to find the truth. Promote real highway safety in Pennsylvania.  Thank you.
Sincerely,
Tom McCarey  Member, National Motorists Association
