What's the Worst Intersection in the Patch?

Tell us which one you think is the worst in the Forest Hills-Regent Square area.

Whether it's the volume of traffic, the timing of the lights or people who consistently run the light after it turns red, everyone has an intersection they love to hate.

Maybe you avoid that intersection at rush hour. Or when school buses cause congestion as school dismisses for the day.

Maybe it's the pedestrians who think "yield to pedestrians in crosswalk" means they can not make eye contact, walk in front of a moving car and expect you to stop even though you're almost at the crosswalk.

Or the on-street parking spaces that require people to parallel park as they back up traffic. And there are a few intersections that have been scenes of fatal accidents through the years.

So, which intersection in the Patch area is the worst? Tell us which one in comments and why!

Any of the crosswalks on Braddock - Sanders, Henrietta - there's a 3rd one I can't think of. They're all playing chicken for the pedestrian!

I agree that trying to turn left from Forbes onto S Braddock is painful, and also Hutchinson onto Braddock during rush hour. Pedistrians do NOT wait for the walk signal which throws everything off. I find this disturbing becasue a lot of them have babies and small children and pets. Also, many people trying to park on that block delay traffic through the lights from all directions. Huge pet peeve.

Newport Rd turning onto Ardmore across from Forest Hills Presbyterian. It's better now that Ardmore is only 2 lanes, but the sight lines down Ardmore are bad, and often obscured by people at the bus stop. Add that to the crazy drivers doing 70mph on Ardmore in the morning rush, and it's a scary thing making a simple right turn.

Braddock Avenue near Roslyn and Westmorland Avenue. The lights have been out of sync for years causing back ups morning and night. It really backs up when Kennywood is open.
