Enforcement of illegal u-turns is not new, said Sgt. Shant Bedrossian. Their ordinance has been in place since 1995. But officers are responding to complaints by citizens and business people in the Brookline commercial area that people are violating the u-turn signs that are clearly posted there, he said.
"People ignore them," Bedrossian said of the signs. And it can be costly. Including fees, the ticket will cost you more than $100.
Where it's illegal to make a u-turn, according to Haverford Township ordinance:
- Brookline Boulevard from East Darby Road to Beverly Road
- West Chester Pike at Lawrence Road
- West Chester Pike at Urlton Road (Old West Chester Pike)
Bedrossian noted that there are other locations on West Chester Pike where you can't make a u-turn that have been determined by the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation because it is a state-owned road.
