On Friday we asked readers where the worst drivers in Somerville are. More specifically, we asked people this question: ?
We got three responses—not a ton—but they all had the same answer: Summer Street.
Daniel Wilkerson said the intersection of Summer and Lowell streets.
Jonah Petri said Summer Street between Cedar and Willow, specifically around the intersection of Hancock.
"NoTyme4BS" suggested Summer Street near the , which is at the intersection of Belmont Street.
In other words, all three responders pointed to a half-mile stretch of road on the same street.
On the surface, this makes sense. Summer Street is a thoroughfare that connects the outskirts of Union Square to the outskirts of Davis Square and flows down the center of the city. For drivers looking to avoid traffic and traffic lights on Highland Avenue or on Somerville Avenue and Elm Street, Summer Street offers an enticing option, one where it can be all to easy to pick up speed.
If you think there's another place in Somerville that has bad drivers or hordes of speeders, let us know.
