Worst Road

Take a drive on Clairemont Avenue in Eau Claire when you want to practice patience —  you’ll need it for the stoplights. At certain times of day, you can hit every one of them, which is probably why Best Of voters have chosen it as Worst Road. Driving on the U.S. Highway 53 bypass will test your ability to speed up and brake fast. It seems many drivers on that route can’t decide if they want to drive above or below the speed limit. Don’t venture down Oxford Street near the Eau Claire Children’s Theatre while drinking coffee. Those rough spots will ensure upholstery stains. — Diana Peterson
