A Sign for Drivers to Behave in Philadelphia

October 07, 2000|Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA — A black-and-orange sign saying "Beware of aggressive drivers" marks hostile roadway turf, while others read "Don't tailgate" and "Slow down--save a life."

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation began posting the messages in a northern Philadelphia suburb last week near Interstate 476, hoping to calm problem stretches of highway. More signs were planted Friday on state routes.

Motorists acknowledged the driving problems but were skeptical about the signs. "People drive like it is the Indy 500. I get clammy hands, and then I start to sweat," said Jennifer Middleman, 34.
