Gouldsboro police work to curb speeding

GOULDSBORO — Slow down, you move too fast.

So goes Simon and Garfunkel’s “59th Street Bridge Song.” The line is apt as summer peaks and tourists, seasonal and year-round residents are getting many activities in before immersing themselves in work and school. But putting pedal to the metal to pack it all in endangers everyone on the road.

Consequently, in recent days, Gouldsboro Police Chief Patrick McNulty says he and Officer Adam Brackett have monitored motorists’ speeds on Route 1, Route 195 (Pond Road) and sections of Route 186. Last Thursday, Aug. 26, he says Officer Brackett posted radar and kept watch of vehicles traveling Route 1 at the Gouldsboro-Steuben town line. On Friday, Aug. 27, both McNulty and Brackett tracked traffic turning from Route 1 onto the Clinic and South Gouldsboro roads. That same day, Brackett also conducted radar to curb speeding on West Bay Road.

In other business, Chief McNulty assisted Schoodic EMS with a medical issue on Belleview Avenue in Winter Harbor. At the time, he says Winter Harbor Police were tied up, but he was subsequently relieved by Winter Harbor Police Chief Danny Mitchell Jr.
