PA Senate panel green lights police radar bill (NMA Mention)

“The reason a radar bill never passed was due to the citizens not wanting it,” said James Sikorski Jr., Pennsylvania advocate for the National Motorists Association.

Sikorski said the legislation should include a requirement intended to ensure that speed limits are set appropriately by local governments and not lower than necessary in order to increase the likelihood that motorists will exceed the posted limits.

“It also refuses to require that tickets should only go to egregious violators, such as those who may be 15 mph above properly set speed limits,” he said. “This is 100 percent being done for the revenue.”
