Traffic Safety Reminder:

Most Borough streets are posted at 25 miles per hour due to road geometry, topography, density of houses and other road and usage factors. Per 2021 Federal Highway Administration statistics, 29% of all fatal crashes are speed-related. Higher vehicle speeds provide less time for motorists to react to a hazard, increase braking distance to a hazard and increase the risk of injury or death. Borough streets tend to have more pedestrians, more bicycle usage, and more children playing in adjacent yards. Simply put the faster you travel the less you see. Please be cognizant of and compliant with speed limits on Borough streets. Of course, traffic, road and weather conditions may require motorists to drive below the speed limit. Please drive safely.

Chief of Police.
