Boston gets poor marks - The Boston Globe
A letter to the Globe about how better lane markings could improve traffic flow:
A general lack of pavement markings in Boston is too often the cause of poor driver behavior. Well-designed markings provide a necessary sense of order and direction with no room for competing "interpretations" of an intersection's proper flow.
Harvard Street northbound at Brighton Ave. in Allston illustrates this point. Harvard is wide enough to accommodate a left-turn lane and a through/right turn lane, yet only a double yellow line is painted down the center."
