Somerville Warnings and Dangers: 1 reviews and 0 photos
The same traffic/driving warnings for Boston apply in Somerville. In fact, driving is pure hell anywhere in the greater Boston area (that is at least driving as one would think of it in area that has laws encompassing that sort of thing). Moving violations are a frequent occurrence, so much so that I think the police have simply given up on enforcing traffic laws. I particularly love the left hand turn from the right-hand lane and drivers that disobey traffic lights (even when there is no traffic). In fact, I just saw a driver in a U.S. Mail truck perform both of these moving violations in one instance today (07/17/2002). He swung out into the oncoming traffic lane (fortunately not being used by oncoming traffic at the time), passed two cars that were in front of him waiting patiently for the light to turn green and then turned left in front of them onto the perpendicular street. All before the light turned green or another car came down the down the street. Absolutely incredible! At least parking is not as bad in Somerville. It's bad, just not as bad as Boston or Cambridge...
