Hey, buddy, I think you dropped something!

For the second time in three days, Robinite reports a bad crash at Allston's demon intersection - Comm. Ave. and Allston Street, shortly before 11 p.m.

Looks like there was just a hit & run at Comm & Allston... Where the Jeep running left his front bumper w/ plate behind!

Saw a piece of (expletive) pull the same crap on Harvard Ave last week too. Sideswiped four cars, and tried to bolt on foot. But he got stopped.

I heard an accident and looked out the window, but I didn't see anything.

The lights on Comm Ave need to be resequenced. The traffic flow doesn't match up to the pedestrian walk lights, and it's dangerous. When the pedestrian DON'T WALK light is on, I could run back and forth across the street 6 times before a car showed up. When the WALK light is on, a ton of cars come zooming up to the red light only to have to slam on the brakes because someone is crossing.

Also, there needs to be an additional light between the one at CVS and the one at Allston Street. People speed really fast in that stretch, and it curves sharply.

They need to time the lights so that people can speed through the intersection ... and they need to install a light to stop people from speeding through another?

No. They need to re-time ALL of the lights so that the cars are kept from speeding straight through without stopping, and using that stretch of Comm Ave as a highway. They should re-time the pedestrian WALK signs to go on when the cars are already stopped at a stop light.

As it stands now, pedestrians get DON'T WALK signs when there isn't a car in sight for a quarter mile, and WALK signs when a swarm of speeding cars is coming at them. Cars get so many green lights in a row that they can gain serious, dangerous speed.

They should time the lights at 30 mph. If you speed, you get to the next light while it's still red. If you go the speed limit, you never have to stop.

The current haphazard lack of timing encourages drivers to jam on the gas, because you never know what will happen with the next light.

Who wants to bet the Jeep was stolen or the driver under the influence?
