BIG RUN â€” Big Run Borough Mayor Joe Buterbaugh encouraged Big Run Borough Council to support the repeal of the state law that prohibits local police to use radar at a recent meeting.
Buterbaugh said if the state law regarding the non-use of radar by local police was repealed, he could possibly have the sheriff's department help with the speeding problem on Main Street in Big Run.
"Pennsylvania is the only state in the union that does not permit municipal police departments to use radar to clock speeders," he said.
