Police Chief Urges Safety for New Canaanites Driving, Walking in Town for Christmas Eve Caroling

On the heels of a car vs. pedestrian accident on Park Street in similarly rainy evening weather, New Canaan’s police chief is calling for participants in Wednesday’s caroling at God’s Acre to be safe. The town, police department, DPW Highway Department, CERT and Fire Department all will enforce “increased traffic control measures” for the caroling, which starts at 6:30 p.m., Police Chief Leon Krolikowski said in a press release. “Increased lighting, messaging, and other enhanced measures will better manage both vehicular and pedestrian traffic,” he said. “Motorists that are not attending this event should avoid the Park Street, Main Street, Saint John’s Place and God’s Acre area,” the chief said.
