Where Do Drivers Speed Most in Woburn?

Let's see if there's a consensus.


We all know there are spots where people tend to speed in Woburn.

In addition to the two major highways that go through Woburn—let's not count those!—we have some pretty big roads: Montvale Avenue, Main Street, Washington Street, Salem Street... The list goes on. 

Tell us in the comments section which are the most dangerous and might need a stop sign, more crosswalks or another measure to slow down traffic. Next Wednesday, we'll run a poll based on the top five areas mentioned by readers to try and find out what's the worst.

Lowell Street for sure coming off of Wyman St - it's a straightaway and people fly down there to see if they can get airborne on the bumps. Maybe a bucket of golf balls getting dumped across the road in front of the speeding motorcycles will slow them down!! Many car and truck mirrors in the neighborhood have been taken off by speeding vehicles. We've had a truck (legally parked in front of our house) totaled by a speeding vehicle (truck ended up on our lawn - facing in the opposite direction). There have been drivers playing chicken in the middle of the night many times on the street. Lowell St and Route 128 ... is there a speed limit difference? Many years ago calls were made daily to a past mayor - we were told cars speed on all the city streets and there was nothing that could be done. Even the cars playing chicken didn't bring this mayor to take any action!

YES...the "anti-gravity" bump on Lowell St right beyond Marion.....I hate speed bumps, but maybe one right beyond the bump, and another right before the curve might slow down the daredevils. I will also mention to anyone who happens to need to cross Lowell St....for instance you just walked your dog around Spence and try to cross near Marion...one of those round-the-corner mirrors would be nice.

What do the police dept. say is the worst intersection in the city? They will know.
