Corrective Amendment to 67 Pa. Code § 211.1072(c)
[32 Pa.B. 2466]
The Department of Transportation has discovered a discrepancy between the agency text of 67 Pa. Code § 211.1072(c) (relating to speed limit sign beacon) as published in the Pennsylvania Code Reporter (Master Transmittal Sheet No. 258) and as currently appearing in the Pennsylvania Code. Subsection (c) contained two typographical errors.
Therefore, under 45 Pa.C.S. § 901: The Department of Transportation has deposited with the Legislative Reference Bureau a corrective amendment to 67 Pa. Code § 211.1072(c). The corrective amendment to 67 Pa. Code § 211.1072(c) is effective as of May 4, 1996, the date the defective official text was announced in the Pennsylvania Bulletin.
The correct version of 67 Pa. Code § 211.1072(c) appears in Annex A.

§ 211.1072. Speed limit sign beacon.
(a) General. A speed limit sign beacon is two circular yellow lens sections mounted vertically and flashed alternately. Typical installations include:
(1) A blankout school speed limit sign beacon shall have lenses with a visible diameter of not less than 6 inches and shall be located within the border of the sign.
(2) Any other speed limit sign beacon, including a school speed limit sign beacon other than the blankout sign, shall have lenses with a visible diameter of not less than 8 inches and be mounted outside the border of the sign with the center of the lens in line with the vertical centerline of the sign. These beacons shall be mounted with the closest part of the housing 12 inches above the top and below the bottom of the sign. The bottom of the housing of the lower beacon shall be at least 5 feet above the roadway surface or sidewalk.
(b) Use. A speed limit sign beacon is intended for use with a fixed or variable speed limit sign. When applicable, a flashing speed limit beacon, with an appropriate accompanying sign, may be used to indicate the speed limit shown is in effect--variable message speed limit signs or school speed limit.
(c) School speed limit sign beacons. All school speed limit sign beacons shall be controlled by a time clock. The time of operation shall be indicated on the permit, and they shall be limited as much as possible in order not to destroy the effectiveness of the sign. In general, the arrival and departure times can be covered by allowing the sign to operate for 1/2 hour for each period. The noontime movements should be covered by two 1/2 hour periods, but may require a longer period which should not exceed 1 1/2 hours. All times should be shorter, if at all possible. The signs should not be used when a small portion of the student body is moving about, such as only a minor percentage of the pupils leaving school for lunch. They may not be flashed at night, on school holidays, during vacation or on nonschool days.
