Paints 'Slow, 25 MPH' on His Speedy Street and Gets Arrested

By    |   Thursday, 23 Oct 2014 06:03 AM

John Cherok thought cars were going too fast down Main Street in his western Pennsylvania town of Burgettstown, so he painted the message "Slow, 25 MPH" on the pavement. Now he's in trouble for it.

The (Washington) Observer-Reporter reported that the 55-year-old Cherok faces a preliminary hearing Thursday after police charged him with disorderly conduct and criminal mischief.

Cherok has lived on the street for 15 years and owns a book store there and said too many cars speed on the road, some up to 50 mph.

Police side they've monitored the road nine times in the past month or so, however, and found no speeding drivers.

Either way, Township Council President James Reedy says he wishes Cherok hadn't taken matters – and a paint brush – into his own hands.
