Car 32 sent to the shop for new paint job!
Unfortunately the spare car has the same issue...

From the comment section of The Day

You have a dead downtown because heavy traffic just runs right through it with zero incentive to stop and property owners who just sit on their properties. Some new business have come... aaand gone and some are still hanging in there but most of what you see is not appealing to any EBer getting out of work trying to make it home. EB is not the problem here. The problem is how your city looks to ANYONE travelling in it. Just yesterday an NLPD K-9 unit pulled up behind me. Hood was all painted up splotched with primer looking like it belonged in someone's chop shop. That's an example of the face of New London right now.

an insult to law enforcement by the House Republican leader!

Bill was tabled, essentially dead for the session.

and Robyn Porter, knew would not get a vote.

He said the bill was not anti-police.
