Where Do Drivers Speed Most in Melrose?

Let's see if there's a consensus.

We all know there are spots where people tend to speed in Melrose.

Tell us in the comments section which are the most dangerous and might need a raised section, another stop sign, more crosswalks or another measure to slow down traffic. Then next Wednesday, we'll run a poll based on the top five answers we received in the callout.

I feel like there is speeding all over Melrose. We have so many streets that are mixed use - residential but also business; so many of our streets are used as cut-throughs for commuters and trucks.

Any side st. between West Wyoming and West Emerson. People like to cut across these streets instead of going to main st. It gets worse when there is a train at west Wyoming and cars try to beat it down the side streets which are mostly one way because they are very narrow.

Howard Street, especially people thinking it's a quick way to get between Melrose and Saugus. http://boston.cbslocal.com/2011/11/10/wanted-driver-hospitalized-after-crash-in-melrose/
