BAINBRIDGE, Pa. (AP) – A community in central Pennsylvania has raised eyebrows at the state transportation department by coloring inside the lines.
Road crews in Conoy Township painted a blue stripe between the double-yellow lines on some streets to express support for police, firefighters and ambulance crews.
But the stripe doesn’t comply with state highway rules, according to a report Wednesday by LNP.
PennDOT spokesman Greg Penny says drivers could get confused and the township could be liable if the coloring causes a crash. Still, Penny wasn’t sure if the agency would take action.
Township supervisor chairman Stephen Mohr disputes the idea that a blue line could be such a distraction. There are no plans to remove the stripes.
Conoy Township is about 20 miles southeast of Harrisburg.
