Young Township residents urge travelers to watch their speed

August 9, 2012

WALSTON — Young Township residents are requesting help from Punxsutawney-based Pennsylvania State Police on slowing down speeders on Ellermeyer Road.

State Police have offered assistance over the years and told residents to call them when they need them to enforce the 25 mph speed limit on the residential road that was recently paved, said Ron Walker, Ellermeyer Road resident, adding that if something isn't done, he thinks there's could be a tragic accident.

Pete Betts, township supervisor, said the township put up the speed limit 25 mph signs on the much-traveled road.
