Where Are Woburn's Most Ignored Stop Signs?

Stop signs are not optional, but they're sometimes treated as if they are.

 

There are hundreds of stop signs in Woburn, but all too often, they are overlooked when drivers are in a rush.

We have all seen it and probably many would admit of a stop sign roll-through at one point in time.  

Do you know of a location where a stop sign is frequently rolled through or ignored?

Share where it is in the comments section, below.

At the second set of the double lights (the lights right at 38)... it's not a stop sign, but that red arrow sure gets ignored all the time. Anytime I see someone waiting for the green, it's only a matter of seconds before people start laying on their horns.

The stop at Campbell and Montvale ia TOO far back, my son was stopped there a couple weeks ago. He DID stop, but not at the line, he stopped where EVERYONE else does, where Campbell actually meets Monttvale and you can SEE.

dgobs, there seems to be some disagreement on the internet about the law for red right turn arrows in MA. Summarizing one discussion I've seen: The RMV driver's manual says to treat it as a red circle (OK to go after a full stop and no oncoming traffic); some municipal codes say it means no turning for as long as the arrow is red; and the Mass. state law appears to be silent on the issue. I treat them as a regular red light, and proceed after stopping if all's clear. If the person in front of me stops and stays put, I might tap the horn, but unless I'm having a rotten day I try to let it go, since so many people seem to think it means stay stopped.

Agreed but no excuse for everyone who ignores the 3-way STOP at Campbell and Wade...it's a disaster!
