Forest St and Wellesley Avenue

Washington Street and Weston Road. Don't try to make a left hand turn off Weston Road if there is a car parked on Washington St blocking your view of what's coming. Or, better....just don't try to make a left hand turn off Weston Road. Agreed about Forest St and Wellesley Ave.

A good part of that problem could be solved by closing Railroad Ave...the short road that goes through the park. Just get rid of that street altogether and make it all park. A path through the park to the train station for pedestrians would work fine.

I agree with Washington Street and Weston, Why there aren't any left turn arrows for drivers turning onto Washington in both directions is a mystery to me. The way the roads intersect makes it impossible for drivers going in either direction to pull forward to wait to turn without blocking drivers staying on Weston to pass through the intersection. Weston and Linden is another nightmare in Peak traffic will it ever be a "normal" lighted intersection, The blinking yellow does nothing to slow traffic on Weston, it seems to make them go faster.Turning left onto Weston at peak times is difficult at best and entirely dependent on the good grace of drivers on Weston Road.

Washinton Street and Cliff Road. When the light turns red on Washington Street, the cars continue to go through, making it very dangerous for those trying to cross the street, or those trying to turn onto Washington Street from Cliff Road. We need the DPW to paint that intersection with stripes, and put up a "DON'T BLOCK THE BLOCK" sign. Also cars have pulled into the intersection when the traffic is backed up at rush hour times.
