Oxford Square

Patience – a key for local drivers these days

Local drivers know which roads to take, where the shortcuts are and the usual speed you can drive. Newcomers and those who’ve lived here just a short time are still learning.

City looks to give parking violators the boot

As the Oxford Board of Aldermen consider implementing a tougher parking enforcement program and hiring a parking management company, habitual overtime parking offenders could notice something is missing during their next trip to the Square — their car.
