Downtown Melrose Traffic


Is it just me or is traffic downtown is out of control?  I see people double parking in front to businesses, putting on there flashers, leaving the car running often with kids inside and running whatever important errand they need to.  One guy parks his truck across the crosswalk in front of Starbucks to get his latte.  Are you kidding me?  I contacted the Chamber who empathized but have no solution other than to contact the police.  How do you feel about this?

There is a very simple reason for all this..............generally, people stink!

I agree with Sherlock---not that they stink but that they are thoughtless and self absorbed with their own lives. The (I'll only be a minute" syndrome. This will only be stopped when the police assign a foot patrol to Main Street to monitor the area during the day. Police driving through about once an hour or so just cannot accomplish much.
