“It was too much. Something had to be done.”

Mike Doten, a farmer from Pomfret, Vermont, regarding the recent decision by the town’s selectboard to block one of New England’s most idyllic roads to anyone except residents for three weeks at the height of the foliage season, from Sept. 23 to Oct. 15. Doten and other residents of Pomfret were fed up with the hundreds of cars clogging the road, often parking haphazardly, when foliage season was underway. Tour buses would also park on the road, spilling out passengers with cameras and cellphones at the ready. Social media has made the situation worse, according to residents.
