    4 way stop causing headaches (and fights)

    Has anyone been through the 4 way stop on Converse ave and Bellrock st? It's turning into a nightmare.  My son was coming home from work on a Saturday afternoon, he's at the 4 way stop and waited his turn to go but someone tried to jump his turn and was upset my son didn't let him.  Now this guy's playing chicken and riding my sons bumper all the way up Converse. At the corner of Converse and Main the guy got  outof his car, runs up to my sons car opens his door and throws him against his car. Now the guy starts swinging at my son and before you know it there's a fist fight between a 35 year old guy and my (18).  All because this moron couldnt wait his turn to go at the 4 way stop.  Ther's got to be a better way top control that area of traffic, I see people jumping their turn all the time.  Do we really need the 4 way stop?

    I don't think the 4-Way Stop has anything to do with this situation.  It sounds more like road rage.  The sign was needed, so it was put up.  There are plenty of stop signs around Malden.

    That 4-way stop is about the stupidest traffic intersection ever devised! They shut down Bellrock and did a "traffic study" for over a year and that's what the city comes up with.!? And people wonder why this city is going nowhere!

    Yes he held his own and lets say the raged driver will never bother him again, but I shouldn't have to worry about his safety in Malden!!

    Holy @%$&, Laurie. I'm so sorry to hear about this. I will say that I've driven in 3rd world countries and driving in Malden rivals the WORST of those experiences though. I'm not, sadly, surprised.

    A25: Wasn't that your ward 1 councilor who was the proponent of that traffic study and subsequent stop sign?

    anonofmalden: Your ability to detect sarcasm on these forums astounds me. It truly does. JFC.

    But in truth, driving in Malden is most certainly worse than driving in any of the other surrounding communities - both for the free-for-all mentality that seems to possess people once they cross the line and for the miserable state of affairs the roads are in.

    I feel Chelsea is the worst. And Boston is bad during lunch hours and taxis do not make it fun. I feel like I am playing frogger in boston, and I am the frog. :)

    Pats2012Champs: Chelsea doesn't bother me too much. But LOL at the Frogger analogy. :D I feel that way walking and crossing streets in Malden moreso than Boston!

    New Bedford has some bad driving also. OH BOY. No one knows what a crosswalk is. Some people will cross 6 feet away from a crosswalk. Crackheads stopping you asking to wash your windows (Like NewYork).
