Getting stuck in the middle of an intersection when the traffic light turns red is embarrassing, and waiting for that car to move while you have a green light is annoying.
The City of Boston in the last couple of weeks has begun cracking down on cars blocking intersections, issuing a whole lot of $150 fines in the process.
‘Villens have their own identity in a lot of ways, but their driving habits seem distinctly deriven from the Boston model (with maybe a little bit more illegal reversing). The city is a lot smaller than Boston, but we have our fair share of similarly clogged intersections, be it at the intersection of Broadway and McGrath or at points near the Cambridge border in West Somerville.
Would you like to see the Somerville Police start handing out tickets to cars stuck in the middle of intersections as well?
