Clumsy people beware, this is a no-staggering town. Definitely no tripping either. And if you have the nerve to slip, fall or lose your balance, you'll be feeding the fine-machine of Doylestown borough. Gotta keep those coppers pensions up. If the guy was getting into a car to drive, I could understand of course.

It's a permanent "walk a straight line" test around here, eh? That's normally reserved for DUI's, but it's applied generally, I see.

Perhaps D'town stands - up? down? - for "Drunk Town" - - - way too many bars! Not enough excellent restaurants. Perhaps 2 . . . at most!

Way, to be >> coherent?! True about the restaurants, sadly.
