The state Department of Transportation may take over responsibility of Route 117 in Lancaster and Bolton, and administrators in both towns say that would be one less thing to worry about in their budgets.

If the State DOES take on the responsibility of overseeing Route 117 through Bolton, will the Bolton Police still be dealing with motor vehicle infractions out on 117?

I have to admit that the sight of the Bolton Police, endlessly hiding out at various spots on 117, as they frantically try to create mountains out of molehills by nickle and diming the the Taxpaying Public with chickensh#t motor vehicle citations, as they attempt to commute back and forth to work on 117, turns my stomach indeed.

There is nothing more desperate appearing and pathetic to me than a bunch of overweight middleaged men and women, wearing tiny and ill fitting, undersized police uniforms, convincing themselves that writing tickets to basically law abiding people for petty motor vehicle infractions is being an effective LEO. What a bunch of saps....

The good old Bolton PD is at it again.......it seems to be impossible to drive on Route 117 in Bolton without seeing SOMEONE pulled by the Bolton PD.

They seem to zero right in on faulty headlights, bum tail lights, non functioning license plate lights, loose license plates, faulty parking lights.......its pathetic. Chances are high that in most cases they are stopping law abiding Taxpayers who are simply commuting back and forth to work. Traffic is frequently clucked up in both directions as these boobs go blasting off in their cruisers in another attempt to make a mountain out of a molehill. These clowns are making traffic more dangerous with their behavior; not safer.

I always thought that real law enforcement involved tracking down thieves, drug dealers, and gang members, along with solving crimes. Not spending your entire shift hassling Taxpayers over damn near nothing. Of course, nothing major ever happens in a town like Bolton, where the police would actually be called upon to do something dangerous or heroic. But even so, can't they just spend their time over at the public schools, busting underage children for possession of a joint or two. Which is what the police are typically doing in other small towns such as Bolton.

The Bolton PD should find something worthwhile to do with their time. I would describe their current police tactics as goofy, sad and pathetic.

Been driving through Lancaster and Bolton on 117 for decades. Iíve never been pulled over in either town.

I wonder why that is.

Oh yeah, Iím not a jackass like Darn and his murderous friend Kevvie.
