• Local police could soon be allowed to use radar guns


    PITTSBURGH - A bill in the Pennsylvania legislature could soon put radar technology in the hands of local police.

    The Pennsylvania House Transportation Committee was scheduled to vote on the bill today.

    Pennsylvania law allows state police to use radar guns to enforce speed limits, but not local police.

    No other state prevents local police from using radar.
