It seems like a lot of the traffic lights in Malden are timed so right before you get to it it turns yellow and you have to hit the brake right before it. I keep my cool though..,.(most of the time lol) Route 60 is notorious for this. Maplewood and Route 60 can be rough sitting on Maplwood St heading south sometimes backed up beyond Webster St. I have been told those lights are controlled by the State. Since the new CVS was built at the corner of 99 and 60 there seems to be more road rage there. (WHICH I DON'T KNOW HOW THEY GOT AWAY WITH NOT HAVING 2 LANES HEADING WEST ON 60 BEFORE THE TRAFFIC LIGHT. EVERY ROAD ENTERING THAT INTERSECTION IS 2 LANES) They adjusted the traffic lights and it seems like it's worse now. Pierce and Salem the traffic stays green for a shorter amount of time these days heading south on Pierce. Probably because Salem St heading west was so congested in the morning. Guess I am still not used to heavy (sometimes gridlock) traffic lol) in Malden yet. Breath in breath out.

I'm thinking that road rage can pretty well be evenly spread out, all the cities have about the same.

as silly as a stop sign on Salem St. sounds they probably put the sign there to slow cars down and discourage it from being a cut through. Cars whip up and down that street all the time.
