    Good. Let’s have more of this. Sick and tired of all the motorcycles and cars with deafening exhaust systems and obnoxiously loud radios cruising around my block.

    Plymouth AVE has been the cruising ground for teens since the 1940s. police need to patrol neighborhoods that were once considered quiet. Mayor Coogan, I believe, lives on a dead end between New Boston Road and Oak Grove Cemetery; very quiet. I live on Rock St.,just up from the 4-way stop off President Ave. between PIERCE and ROCK Street. This is where the noise and action is. Kids in old Toyotas, VWs, etc. scream through the stop sign ( In FALL RIVER, STOP SIGNS and RED LIGHTS are just SUGGESTIONS.)and continue up the hill toward the next STOP sign, a 1/4 mile up the hill. Rock Street is a 1-way thoroughfare that goes from President Ave. all the way to downtown, with a myriad of connecting streets branching both east and west. I would recommend the Mayor park in the Church of Christ parking lot any weekend to witness the blatant disregard and dangerous noise and other violations the neighborhood is powerless to do anything about.Sadly, the area is deemed Historic Highlands, go figure that!
