Community paints blue stripe in middle of road to honor cops
BAINBRIDGE, Pa. - A community in central Pennsylvania has painted a blue stripe between the double-yellow lines on some streets to express support for police, firefighters and ambulance workers.
But the state Department of Transportation is concerned that Conoy Township might have crossed a line - figuratively, that is.
According to a report Wednesday by LNP, the stripe doesn't comply with state highway rules.
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.
