• New solar power speed limit signs going up in North Hills community


    ROSS TOWNSHIP, Pa. - Ross Township officials are hoping new solar powered speed limit signs will encourage drivers to slow down and stay safe on the roads.

    The township purchased three signs that can be spotted around town.

    If drivers go over 35 mph, the signs light up red, clock how fast they’re going and tell them to slow down. The signs flash “thank you” if drivers obey the speed limit.

    The township spent $7,500 on the signs, the first of which is located along Rochester Road.

    Officials are still trying to figure out where to put the second sign.

    The third sign will be on a trailer that can be moved to designated problem spots.
