This is not new. Ever driven

This is not new. Ever driven through a construction zone and have a porta potty flash? That's where they hid the speed cameras.

Really?

Get out of here... they really hide them in porto potties? I've heard of cops hiding in the construction vehicles but porto potties, doubt it LOL.

They are actually dummies.

They are actually dummies. Several states use them for the construction sites.

Not Just Speeding in Construction Zones

Although this story is not directly related to speeding in a construction zone, it does deal with worker safety in these areas.

It is new for Pennsylvania

It may not be new in other areas of the country but it is for Pennsylvania which at this point does not allow speed cameras and only recently started to allow red light cameras in places that meet very specific criteria outside of Philadelphia.

Why Hide Them??

Unless the intended purpose of this speed camera bill is revenue enhancement and not construction zone safety, why hide them? It seems to me they would be far more effective at slowing traffic if they were in plain sight with a warning sign.

The PA state police have been using dummies behind the wheel of a marked patrol car for years to slow construction zone traffic.

Safety or Cash

Safety may be one of the concerns, but the main concern is revenue generation.
