[ARCHIVED] Is Cranberry doing anything about all the speeding?

Cranberry has no shortage of complaints about traffic issues. Some concerns are registered formally, others more casually. Some come from organizations, others from individuals. And they deal with every aspect of traffic management: speeding, cut-throughs, sign requests, speed bumps, and more. At its November 6 meeting, Cranberry’s Board of Supervisors heard an update about the Township’s response to resident complaints, and it involves more than one department. Cranberry’s engineering department is brought in to evaluate essentially every traffic concern and it frequently initiates traffic surveys to establish patterns of abuse, possible design changes, and priorities for targeted enforcement. Township police, although prohibited from using radar to enforce speed limits, do their best to discourage speeding and to use state-authorized techniques to enforce them. But the most important elements in traffic management are partnerships between the Township and neighborhood homeowners associations. These partnerships have led to slow-down programs built around the school year, speed trailer postings to raise driver awareness of their speed, and increased local vigilance for chronic offenders.
