Red means stop

After a number of accidents and close calls, including some with pedestrians, Milford town officials have installed a solar blinking red light to tell drivers entering the Oval from Nashua Street to stop. Many drivers ignore the stop sign at the corner, and the light ‘is an attempt to get people to recognize that it is truly a stop, and not a rolling stop,’ said town administrator Mark Bender. Police have also been patroling on bicycles and giving out tickets, he said.
