How do four vehicles crash on a stretch of road that the speed limit is 35 MPH ? Doesn't anyone have any situational awareness anymore ? I can understand the intersection can be troublesome with the people that dart across the highway and whatnot... But four cars ?

Wake up guys, your smart cars are making you look dumb.

Its the highway Cranky, The road needs to be completely redone with center divider and bike paths and rotaries. Its the only way to stop accidents nowadays. I don't even go on Cranberry highway anymore, I just cant trust that road anymore or its ability to get me from point A to point B safely. Its always looking to cause problems.

No revelation here but this road was designed as a thoroughfare serving this corner of Mass. and to get traffic on and off the Cape.  It is now the major commercial road leading to much of the commerce in Wareham with mostly local, turning traffic .  As long as the carnage continues, I will be taking the side streets anytime I can.  And if were a business owner located on the Highway of Death I would calling my State Rep weekly looking for support to get this road some way overdue help.

Hey Sphere, lets open our Sonic over at the corner of Depot and Onset Ave where all the traffic is going.

Snowman, How about at the fire dept building, There is a building and land that could be sold when the Districts are done away with. Ready source of labor at Brandy hill and the other project just steps away.

Here we go again. Let's take 4 people that weren't paying attention or weren't willing  to let another go, either way the road is still an inanimate object and NOT responsible for piss poor driving.  If they have trouble navigating there they shouldn't be on the road at all. I'm sure no help is needed with them  coming up with excuses and why they aren't to blame for this.
