Allston certainly has its share of pedestrian dangers. Lincoln Street may be the worst.
- A bicyclist was hit by a car and killed in June 2004
- A car crashed through the brick wall on Lincoln Street near Everett Street in February 2005
- Cars have gone off the road and badly damaged fences on both sides of Lincoln Street at the intersection with Mansfield Street
