Ottawa Street South – Worst Street in the Region

The intersection of Ottawa Street and Homer Watson Boulevard in Kitchener.

The intersection of Ottawa Street and Homer Watson Boulevard in Kitchener.

Busy Ottawa Street South in Kitchener has been named the most dangerous place to drive — again. Ottawa Street at Homer Watson Boulevard is once again the worst intersection for collisions. It has held this spot for three years. Ottawa Street South appears three times among the 10 most dangerous roads. Other collision-prone intersections are Ottawa at Westmount Road and Ottawa at Fischer-Hallman Road.

Another astonishing fact:

Seven of the 10 most dangerous roads are in Cambridge. They include sections of Franklin Boulevard, Hespeler Road, Eagle Street North, Pinebush Road and King Street.

Huh? Maybe the installation of roundabouts along Franklin Boulevard would be a good thing 😉

    Can’t see that a roundabout would take up any more space than that desolate desert of an intersection already occupies.
