A potholes plus

While I imagine most city residents whose streets made the paving list for 2014 are grateful, if not joyous, I am not among them. I live on Edgebrook Avenue, a street in Brookline used by commuters as a “shortcut” between Brookline Boulevard and Route 51. Edgebrook is also, in most places, one lane (not one lane each direction — just one lane). Since I’ve lived here, the staircase to my house has been hit three times, my car twice, my pets run over and my niece nearly killed.

While the potholes are often positively cavernous, they seem to be the only thing that slows drivers down. Paving just makes it possible to go faster. Nobody seems willing to do anything about speeders in residential neighborhoods.
