Is there anyone in Holliston (besides the Selectmen past and present) who thinks that the lights downtown improved traffic flow?

July 29, 2018:

Crash, 74 Summer; Ashland versus Candia, NH. One person taken to hospital, Hometown took a vehicle to storage.

Selective enforcement, 760 Washington; light cycle check. Also checked light cycle at Exchange. Both checked OK (a watched dog never eats your desert).

July 30:

Crash, 121 Woodland; no  details but hometown Auto dispatched.

Crash, Washington & Church Place; a Pembroke driver hit a Holliston driver and a hydrant. Hometown Auto and the Water Department called.

Traffic complaint, Washington & Central; caller stated that the lights not cycling properly and "people are going through the red lights out of frustration".(first of many calls from Holliston-based traffic engineers)

July 31:

Animal incident, Union; dog walker reports losing a dog in Ashland (Boston terrier).

August 1:

Traffic complaint, Pleasant; caller complaining about electronic speed limit set up on the street (damned if you do...)

Breaking & Entering, Fiske. No details.

Vehicle stop with summons, Concord & Kuniholm; Yefry Navas of Framingham for violations 90-10, 18 and 24 (two more and he might have won RMV BINGO).

10:30 PM, vehicle check, Pleasure Point; Medfield resident advised to move on (reserved for Holliston lovers).

August 2:

Vandalism, Wingate; mail box destroyed.

Traffic complaint, Washington & Central; more confusion, more irritation, long lines.

Animal incident, HPD; report of an incident with a dog. Advised to call ACO

Animal incident, Underwood; report of dog "looking lost"( was it a Boston Terrier?).

August 4:

Vehicle stop with summons, 855 Washijngton; Evelline Costa of Framingham for speeding and juvenile operating without an adult (is it OK if the adult doesn't have a license?)

re Peter Simpson... Why wouldn't you be allowed to make a right on red out of central?

In fairness, I sat through 2 cycles of lights on Central St on Sunday, 7/5. It does seem that something's amiss there. Finally made a right on red.

? when one dispatches an animal that had been found not doing well and dispatching Hometown Auto the same thing. another good day with the Holliston reporter. Thank you Jean Morrissey
