Worst Road

After years of complaining about these roads in the Best of Poll, one would assume those in charge would GET ON IT. OK, maybe tearing up and redoing the entire system of ill-planned roads around Oakwood Mall isn’t super realistic, but figuring out the timing of the stoplights on Clairemont is well within the bounds of modern technology. Why, oh why, can’t somebody finally deal with this?!? When it comes to fixing our third-place finisher, the only place to look is inward – the U.S. Highway 53 bypass inspires too many of us to live out our aggressive big city driving fantasies. –Eric Rasmussen
