This Day in Norwood History-January 12 1948-Start Enforcing One Way Ruling on Central, Cottage Streets

The new traffic regulation making Central street one-way southerly from Cottage street to Day street will be enforced starting January 12th, it was announced yesterday by Police, Chief Thomas C. Lydon following receipt of a communication from General Manager Edward C. Monahan.

Effective on the same date, the one-way regulation on Cottage street westerly from Washington street to Maple street.

Although the one-way signs have been in place for two weeks, no attempt has been made to enforce the regulation in order to give motorists an opportunity to become accustomed to the change. This “educational” period will end on January 11, however, and the regulation will be strictly enforced after that date. In the meantime, drivers would do well to start obeying the signs at once.
