WYOMING -- Pennsylvania is the only state in the U.S. that prohibits local police from using radar guns to enforce speed limits.
There's now a push in Harrisburg to change that.
A bill to change that is making its way through the state legislature, but not everyone is on board with the plan.
On Pettebone Street in the borough of Wyoming, driver after driver tops the 35 mph speed limit on Wyoming Avenue.
In Wyoming, police use lines painted on the road and a timer or a stopwatch to calculate a driver's speed. But those methods are less accurate and more time consuming than using a radar gun.
In Pennsylvania, only state police can use radar guns.
"Any tools that we could have available to us should be available to us," said Wyoming Police Commissioner Mike Flanagan.
In Harrisburg, the senate transportation committee voted for a bill that would make radar available to all police in Pennsylvania.
"If the state police could have it, I think the locals should have it because they're around more than the state police are," said Mike Kolessar of West Wyoming.
The cost for a radar gun could be about $2,000.
"I think it'd be a waste," said Al Kenny of Lake Ariel. "I don't think people speed down here, that much. There's no place to speed."
"It absolutely is a money maker, more money in their coffers!" said Ted Reichart of Exeter.
Police point out that municipalities often limit how much revenue can come from traffic tickets.
"It's time that we get up with the program, come up to speed, so to say, with technology," said Flanagan.
Now that the senate transportation committee has approved the bill, it will now go to the full state senate for a vote. There is no word on when that might be.
