Where are the most dangerous intersections in town?

A recent study listed the most dangerous intersections in Massachusetts and New England, and while no Stoneham intersections made the list it got us wondering. Where do you think the most dangerous spot is in town?

The intersection of Mystic Avenue and the Fellsway in Somerville was ranked as the “most dangerous” intersection in the state and the third most dangerous one in New England in a recent study by GoLocal Worcester, an online publication.

Also among the most dangerous was Bridge St. and Veterans of Foreign Wars Highway, along with Veterans of Foreign Wars Highway and Varnum Ave., both Lowell intersections.

The site’s methodology looked at total number of accidents, fatalities, injuries and property-damage-only crashes at each intersection.

Looking at just Stoneham, what do you find to be the most dangerous intersection? Is there a road you avoid because it's too dangerous? Let us know in the comments section below.

The intersection of Pine and Hancock is the worse for pedestrians. The town allows the cars at the apartment house to use the sidewalk for private parking. They completely block the sidewalk forcing kids walking to school in the road. It's only a matter of time before sometime gets hit.

Taking a left at the stop sign where Pleasant Street merges with Spring Street in the morning work/school traffic. Also, in the other direction on Pleasant Street when taking a left at the stop sign onto Franklin Street.

Parking on sidewalks is something we can see all the time. However, we never see a ticket on the windshield.

Maple and Montvale. Half the drivers assume that you can make a left from the right lane and the other half expect that you can't leading to lots of near misses.

Around 1957, at age 17, I was going North on Wright St., when I suddenly found myself in the middle of Montvale, still doing 20-30 mph. The stop sign had been completely obscured by tree branches. Luckily, nobody was coming. It still scares me to think of it, 57 years later.
