To radar, or not to radar: That is the question Big Run Council is discussing

September 20, 2012

BIG RUN — 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.

"Pennsylvania is the only state in the union that does not permit municipal police departments to use radar to clock speeders," he said.
