Linglestown Gazette: LP police seek opinions from citizens

LP police seek opinions from citizens

The Lower Paxton Twp. Police Department is asking for opinions from citizens of all ages, according to an item in the township’s July-September newsletter. CLICK HERE to answer survey questions.

The survey takes five minutes or less to complete. (Add a few minutes if you submitte suggestions.) Below is the suggestion that I submitted:

There are stop signs in my neighborhood that are regularly ignored by motorists. This is a potential hazard to bicyclists and pedestrians (my neighborhood does not have sidewalks).
I suggest teaming up with citizens in my neighborhood and others with a similar situation to (1) determine whether the signage is appropriate based on current state and local transportation regulations, and to (b) develop strategies for encouraging motorists to properly observe stop signs.

In related LP news, the township recently recognized the efforts of several officers who have gone above and beyond the call of duty. One highly notable award recipient was Officer Brian Guarnieri of the Traffic Safety Unit for taking actions in conjunction with a vehicle stop on Rt. 22 that resulted in the arrest of a subject listed on the national terrorist list.

To read about more honorees, see page 3 of the township newsletter.
