Maybe the radar guns will help them stop people going 60mph up Conewango

Sickofit, for what have you been pulled over in the past year? If it's for speeding, I'm delighted. you live in a COMMUNITY, not on an island. Your personal rights do not extend to the right to kill or injure me or mine.

The city has VASCAR which is actually better than radar in some applications. Why are they complaining about not having radar? Also unless the law changes allowing police to run radar while patrolling(driving), it is no different than using painted lines or VASCAR in low speed area like towns. If this is all honestly about making our town safer and not making money, there should be a patrol cars out everyday in the high pedestrian traffic areas. Especially in the school zones.

They would be letting a monster loose. Everyone thinks it's a good idea until they are the ones who gets a ticket for going over 25 on PA Ave or Ludlow Sts. Article in the Post Journal last week about the absurd number of tickets given out by the NY depts last year. We'll all be walking if that would ever happen in PA.

Don't they already use that? Non the less they are more then welcome to come set next to my house on Jackson ave as people seem to think Jackson ave is a drag strip! They could make a small fortune in just one day!

They are worried about "...using radar as a means to generate revenue..."? Um, well, maybe that's why they SHOULD have it. Maybe law breakers should pay more into the kitty instead of our property taxes being raised to generate revenue.

The biggest problem I see on the city streets is women texting while driving. Yes, I said WOMEN. It appears to be a gender-driven habit, and a very poor one. If we are truly worried about public safety, that must be dealt with. I'm not one for more government intervention and laws, but texting while driving MUST GO.
