I live on Turner rd. People start speeding as soon as they come off Sandwich rd. It ridiculous. I ve had crashes in front of my house. Want a tip, put cops about 1/4 mile before Landers/Turner intersection at 6-7am. You’ll catch many speeders

That's a tough curve. Hope all is well.

Had a audi vs pole is Hanson... Are poles just magnetized atm?

Right now in bourne , a woman versus Pole, last night in Mashpee a truck snapped a pole what is it with people slow down

Could have really hurt somebody

Way to many accidents on this road. Possibly Black Ice 🧊

And he didn't even have a license

Maybe they can fixe the other one down the street while they are at it

Shouldn't it be Monday the 19th not Wednesday

That's what made my power flicker early this morning.

Can’t these drunks stay at home?
