PennDOT reg Regarding Traffic Control Attire Rewritten
December 31, 2016, finalized the newly revised Chapter 101 of Title 67. This is the regulation that sets the standards for attire when directing traffic.
Final Form rulemaking states this - all persons directing traffic shall wear attire in conformance to that required in the Federal Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD). The MUTCD requires ANSI-approved vests/clothing.
For Fire Police, we're required to display a badge, and to wear "a distinctive armband or hat or uniform or insignia" per our own law. Therefore, we can still meet the standard with our official hat and badge, on a vest or coat.
Be safe! Be seen!
