From the Traffic report:
"The handling of automobile traffic today is rapidly becoming the most difficult and the most important part of a Police Department. The traffic situation in Bangor has been handled in a more satisfactory and efficient manner than ever before due to improvements in operating the Traffic Division to changes in the personnel and to modern equipment. The Bangor Police Department is now making a thorough check-up of all public automobiles and trucks as regards proper lights, brakes, etc. and requires defective equipment to be placed in proper condition before these cars are allowed on the highway. In order to make streets safe, this department is carrying on a determined war against speeders, reckless drivers and drunken drivers, in a firm, courteous but impartial manner."
