PEDDLING & SOLICITING INFORMATION

Peddling and Soliciting - Lower Salford Township does permit soliciting in residential areas based on ordinance 121. Companies or individuals requesting to solicit or peddle goods or services within this Township must obtain a permit from the Lower Salford Township Police Department. Each person or member of an organization is responsible to obtain their own permit. No permits will be issued to cover a group of people. The issued party will be required to display the permit issued by this police department, which will be signed by a designated member of the police department. If the subject(s) does not produce a valid soliciting registration card they are in violation of the Township ordinance and the police department should be contacted or the subject(s) instructed to obtain an lawful permit.

Permits issued by this department are valid to that person for a period of 90 days. Each individual desiring to solicit must provide their own criminal history report from the applicant's home state. The report cannot be more than six months old. This must be done before the permit can be approved and issued. The fee for each permit is $25 and will be valid for a 3 month period. Soliciting may be conducted between 9AM and dusk. Solicitor(s) must be professional and abide by the application agreement, and violate no state or township ordinances.

PENNSYLVANIA'S YELLOW DOT PROGRAM
www.YellowDOT.pa.gov

This program was created to assist citizens in the "golden hour" of emergency care following a traffic accident when they may not be able to communicate their needs themselves. Placing a yellow dot in the vehicle's rear window alerts first responders to check your glove compartment for vital information to ensure you receive the medical attention you need.

The program is a cooperative effort among the Pennsylvania Deaprtments of Transportation, Health and Aging; the PA State Police, the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission and First Responders and local law enforcement.
