I saw what happened and the person who fled the scene was blocking an intersection to elderly homes. It happens all the time what would happen if one of those older persons need help. They wouldnt get help when needed because people are blocking the intersection when their is a sign in clear view that says dont block intersection. How would you feel if your parent/grandparent needed help and someone was blocking them thats right outraged.

Nobody on the roads today has any consideration for anybody but themselves. I think that most people - old and young alike are on too much medication. It's astounding how little thought goes into driving these days. That's one of the main reasons there is so much traffic and so many accidents.

I live on Bartholomew St.closer to Lynn St. I don't know how I have not been broad sided by a vehicle coming either way. No one stops to let me out, & my lft vehicle may but the rt vehicle goes right around & does not allow me to move out. Need a light there I think as it is a access road from 128, although living there, I cannot believe the nightmare this would provide. I don't know how the injuries have survided so far. Please find an answer for us living on Bartholomew St. Dogs are killed wkly, h opefuly no children as yet. Judy Isom,. 26H Bartholomew St. Pea., Ma
