    BURGETTSTOWN, Pa. - A Burgettstown man upset about speeding has taken concerns into his own hands.

    “It’s a problem.  It’s a safety issue.  School is starting this week,” said John Cherok.

    Cherok owns More Than Just Books on Main Street and said after years of complaining to borough officials and police, he decided to grab a can of spray paint.

    Cherok spray painted the speed limit of 25 mph in the middle of the street.

    His action landed him in trouble with police.  The spray paint is considered criminal mischief vandalism.  Cherok said police warned him that he’ll be cited.

    “I haven’t gotten a letter yet, but apparently it’s considered vandalism," he said.
