Now let's see if the monitoring of excessive traffic and speeding cars as a cut thru for Milford and Hopkinton as well as parents taking their children to soccer is also accomplished. When there is a police presence, unfortunately it is the wrong times of day.

Did they ever find the guy peeping in the windows?? That's a tad bit creepy.

Having the police on Union has definitely helped keep speed and volume down. Thank you HPD for helping us during these changes to downtown traffic!
