BAINBRIDGE, Pa. (AP) -- A community in central Pennsylvania has painted a blue stripe between the double-yellow lines on some streets to express support for police, firefighters and ambulance workers.

But the state Department of Transportation is concerned that Conoy Township might have crossed a line -- figuratively, that is.

According to a report, the stripe doesn't comply with state highway rules.

PennDOT spokesman Greg Penny says drivers could get confused and the township could be liable if the coloring causes a crash. Still, Penny wasn't sure if the agency would take action.

Township supervisor chairman Stephen Mohr disputes the idea that a blue line could be such a distraction. There are no plans to remove the stripes..
