In a jam

June 10, 2008 - John D'Agostino

One of the great things about our area is we really do not have to worry about fighting traffic. Usually, we get in our cars and arrive at our destination with very no congestion.

During the weekend of June 6 to 8, the volume of traffic and the number of motorists parking on streets from Silver Creek to Westfield increased dramatically. It was Attic and Seller Days.

Judging by the number of buyers -- and those selling -- it was another popular event. But some in our community were lamenting the added traffic on the lesser traveled streets.

That's the one thing we forget in Western New York. Traffic problems are, in a sense, good news. Residents from Pennsylvania, Ohio and neighborhing counties came here looking for a deal. And, while visiting, they probably stopped at a restaurant and took in some of the retail merchants.

The good news for those who can't stand fighting that added traffic is Attic and Seller Days is over for another year. The bad news is the Fourth of July celebration in Dunkirk is just around the corner.
