Just want to bring this safety issue to the attention of parents that there are people running the stop signs. They aren't driving slow either, doing 25mph or better. RPPD is aware of this. Also PSP have been notified about this.See More

Check out the accompanying photo.  This is the first thing one sees as one enters the Borough on Swarthmore Ave.

How many "Code Violations"…
