This Day In History: 1902-05-05
James Devine Jr. appeared before the Town Board to petition them to take action concerning the speed at which automobiles drive, especially down the hill near Miller’s. These drivers are reckless on all roads but particularly so where they have been running “at nearly a two minute clip” (30 miles an hour). Dogs have been killed here and parents keep their children in doors out of fear. A constable is to be hired and the fine raised at the next meeting.
