New Oxford Pennsylvania is one of the most beautiful communities I’ve ever seen. I love the square. It’s so easy to drive through and the scenery is gorgeous. But an article in the Gettysburg Times recently stated that there have been 11 accidents in the square in the last five years. It seems that people like to drink and drive through New Oxford. They crash their cars into the center of the square and damage the beautiful monuments and other decorations placed there by the city.
But that’s the least of your problems. What if one of those drunk drivers crashed into you?
Be careful out there. If you’re going to admire the beautiful scenery, park your car and walk. Stay away from drunk drivers. Especially in New Oxford.
