Reading all the crash reports you'd think it snowed last week.

If you crash into a hydrant, you should get to paint the new one any way you like.

January 20, 2019:

Vehicle stop with summons, 3213 Washington; Wilson Luciano Quitovasque of Milford for speeding, passing and reckless operation. Hometown Automotive called. Transported to Milford Dunks (Wilson's treat?).

Crash, 1575 Highland; car versus tree. Hometown Automotive called.

Complaint, Turner; report of children sledding on the hill (where is the SWAT Team when you need them?)

I saw on TV the other day a police officer wanting a law passed to require the operator of a vehicle being stopped at night to put on the inside light of the vehicle. I think this is a good idea and would like to bring it to everyone's attention. Along with this to keep your hands in plain view of the officer. Wait for the officer to ask for your license and registration before doing so. We owe it to all police officers to let them know their life isn't at risk. Any other thoughts ?
