I am glad that the FPD received this award. I have seen them addressing the traffic issues a bit more but it is still very minimal.
The FPD should be instructed to pull drivers over if they do not stop for pedestrians in crosswalks. At present they use an undercover ploy as a pedestrian which I do not agree with as they should just watch on Main street as cars almost run over pedestrians everyday.
There is also a speeding problem in Fitchburg that needs to be addressed. We need more undercover cars so they can park unnoticed to these violators.
I don't see why Fitchburg always needs a grant in order to address these crosswalks issues? Grants are nice but these police stings should be done as part of the work day also.
I am also wondering if there is a law against the vulgar loud music that these cars play in their cars at Tedeschis and other stops? A ticket should be issued and not a warning as the language being loudly displayed is disturbing the peace. I understand free speech but overly loud vulga language should be disturbing the peace.
In ending, kudos to the FPD on their award. I must also state that it is nice to see the FPD addressing other issues professionally also. Be safe and God Bless.

Well, most of the traffic light sensors which detect the presence of an arriving vehicle do not work! These should be fixed!
This accounts for the major traffic backups from Water St. on Bemis Rd. and onto John Fitch.
