If Pennsylvania Rep. Mario Scavello, R-176th have his way, PA House Bill 38 would allow local police officers to use radar devices to enforce speed laws. Currently, some departments are using gap time, VASCAR and pacing / clocking.
Pennsylvania is the only state to prohibit local police officers to use radar to enforce speed limit laws. In other words, only PA State police can utilize radar as a speed measuring device.
Hearing on House Bill 38 will be held in Monroe County and Harrisburg.
