Just pay your tickets
I like when they say "expedite the ambulance". As if they are taking their time going to a call in the first place.

When coming over that bridge, Water to Main... If the right lane does what it is supposed to, then the left lane will have no problem getting to Blossom. It's the dumb asses that can't read the sign, that turn left from the right lane that I have to cut off to get to Blossom when I am obeying laws. It's about time the police paid attention to this. There are rules for a reason, whether you agree with them or not, they need to be obeyed. Just pay your damn tickets and follow the rules.

Where is the sign that you mentioned? is it before the bridge? I did seen some arrows on the road after I went back to look. There are no signs where you turn left to Main street.

There may not be a sign. Such as when turning left from Main Street onto River Street instead of going straight up Main Street to the Greek church.

There are no signs to signal left when turning onto River Street but the police are bagging drivers for not doing so. Main Street does not become River Street, Main Street keeps going straight so that requires a left turn signal.

The other problem that confuses drivers is the stop sign on Main Street at KCs Pub inbound. That doesn't mean drivers in the opposite direction do not have to signal.

1.The left lane says left turn so you can turn left then go straight to river st. You can also do a left on red there if your in the left lane.

2.So A cop can't give you a ticket because they are begging you not to do it.

3. It nice if you do BUT you are not required by law to do it.

GPS can't help. I put in things like Kentucky and the freakin thing is telling me 'turn left, turn right etc..' I haven't even left my house yet and I'm already lost and all I wanted was a three piece chicken meal in a box with a spork and a napkin. If I ever can find the way out of the house I'm bringing a loaded can of spray paint with me! My sneaky backup is Julio here's us breaking down some sounds and paint. Spin it and spray it Julio!

The title of this thread fooled me.

I thought Councilor-at-Large Jeffrey Bean resumed his career "ministering and counseling" young women.

Yes they can give you a ticket. The double yellow lines prevent inbound motorist from stopping and taking a left turn at KCs Pub to proceed down Main Street towards the Greek Church. Those lines are there to keep the motorist to keep proceeding inbound towards the Boulder.

The double yellow lines does not mean that Main Street turns into River Street. That section of Main Street is the oldest part of Fitchburg. The brown house near the cemetery is the oldest house in Fitchburg built on a slab with no basement.

Main Street continues straight and the police can ticket you if you do not signal when turning left onto River Street.

Another big ticket area is taking a left onto Cushing from Boulder Drive and going across Main Street to Blossom. When going across Main Street you are actually traveling in the wrong direction on the wrong side of Main Street for a couple of seconds.$200 fine.

You can either take a left to go back up Main Street or a right to go to the set of lights on Main Street but because there is a slight angle to cross over Main to go up Blossom you are traveling towards incoming traffic.

The police have bagged several motorist over the last week for that.
