Cops are spread too thin already!

To the Editor:

The allowance of ATVs on Berne town roads, proposed in Local Law #1, is a no-brainer in my opinion.

An Albany County Sheriff’s representative says they “could increase patrols in the area ….”

Cops are spread too thin already!

Rarely does any agency provide surveillance and enforce the 45-mile-per-hour speed limit on State Route 443.

If anyone in the Helderbergs thinks this will be enforced by any police agency, they’ve got to be singing the old tune from the ’60s: “The Fool(s) on the Hill.”
