Great news for Massachusetts metropolitan drivers, auto thefts decreased by 11.5 percent over the last couple years. However this does not mean Mass drivers should leave their car doors unlocked. The most-Stolen vehicle in Massachusetts last year was the 1995 Honda Civic. (Auto Thefts Down in Mass., U.S. in ’08, by Craig M Douglas)
Summer season is here again! This means one thing… so is construction season.
Massive pile ups and countless detours plague the roads. Massachusetts roads crumbled until Gov. Deval Patrick signed a $2 billion emergency transportation bond, starting hundreds of previously under-funded projects.
With additional funding: “Massachusetts will see about $115 million projects this summer, compared with $92 million last year.” – Roadway Headachesby Elaine Thompson
With this much construction in Massachusetts this summer you’re bound to drive through it sometime. When traveling through the work zones drive carefully. Fines double in work zones, and the constant construction may change the road’s drivability and sometimes direction. Save yourself a few bucks on tickets, car insurance, and accident’s medical bills, drive safely.
