"At 9:48 a.m. officers received a call from a North Street resident who said a neighbor has driven up and down the street numerous time.." This call really bothers me...if I choose to drive up and down my street what is illegal about this? My goodness, do people call the police about every little thing now? I have taken my kids who were learning to drive up and down streets...were people calling? This one is even worse as it is a neighbor, so instead of maybe seeing if the neighbor is ok or just watch for a while, or maybe just stepping away from the window, they call the police.

I thought the same thing webmom. There must be more to the story. If someone wants to drive up and down a street and are otherwise obeying the rules of the road, why are the police called? and what does a home under construction on the street have to do with anything? Sometimes these police logs make no sense.
