Another one

By on

And another bad accident on the j-way at 2:30 am.

Northbound Jamaicaway traffic

By on

trying to turn left on Willow Pond at this intersection has no indication at all that the southbound light is green longer than the northbound one. When their northbound light turns red and they're stuck in the interection, drivers often try to turn assuming the southbound traffic is slowing/stopping for the same light sequence. It's a highly dangerous situation on a well-travelled route - though I have no idea what the actual circumstances of this incident were.

Jamaicaway

The Jamaicaway is the most terrifying stretch of road that I have ever encountered in a major US city.
