Worst Road

Here are the worst roads in the area that earn themselves these back-handed top-three honors. Within a ¼ mile radius of Oakwood Mall, shopping or dining, particularly on weekends, is not for the faint of heart. Coming in strong for second place, Clairemont Avenue (especially the stoplights) will truly put your vehicle’s brakes to the teSt. Looking to test your patience? For a showcase of road rage, direct your attention to the U. S. 53 bypass, where aggressive drivers let loose. —Hannah Angell
