WOKQ listeners shared which intersections they thought were the worst to drive through. You know, the ones that have the most slowdown, accidents and driving mistakes that make every other driver cringe.
One traffic circle in particular was the center of a lot of anger from drivers. Speaking of which let's get right down to...
The 12 Worst Intersections in New Hampshire
1. Lee Traffic Circle
This one got a lot of response from frustrated drivers, even though it has recently been "improved" upon. Listeners are not a fan of the new changes and one even referred to this traffic circle as a "nightmare." One listener suggested they put lanes signs in "earlier and clearer" because something "just seems off" with this two-lane traffic circle.
2. Spaulding Turnpike Exit 8 East/West
One listener does not appreciate crossing paths when merging near these exits.
3. Exit 2 off-ramp from I-89 North
This one seems to be dangerous when traffic gets heavy during the morning commute.
4. Derry Traffic Circle
This traffic circle seems to be a magnet for traffic accidents.
5. Five-way intersection in Goffstown
This one is right near the library in Goffstown, which is surely a headache for commuters and bookworms alike.
6. Route 202 and Estes Road in Rochester
The Google Maps car caught the frustration of cars trying to merge at this intersection. The listener who submitted this as "one of the worst" said it is "so dangerous, especially when slippery! Cars fly around the corner coming from the Rochester direction and a lot of times its impossible to see them until last minute."
7. Route 1 and 107 intersection in Seabrook
This one got some ire from two of our listeners. One of them said it is a "pure gridlock. Everyone blocks the intersection, from every direction!"
8. 101 West Exit to 293 North
This exit is apparently hellish no matter what time it is. Quote from a listener: "I hate driving that anytime of the day!!"
9. Route 108 South in after Dover Middle School
Roads are always iffy near schools, but it looks like a lot of commuters through Dover are not loving this intersection. Here is a little inside information from a listener: "There is a set of four stop lights beginning with Dover Middle School/Back River Road and ending after Burger King/gas station that are just awful!!!! And cars like to block the intersections.... why? I have no idea. Maybe they want to get hit."
10. Five Corners in Hampton
Looks like this much-hated intersection has had a lot of debate around it from locals who absolutely hate it. A listener referred to it as "a complete cluster, always has been."
11. The intersection of Epping road, Columbus Ave and Brentwood Road in Exeter
That business on the left must not be too happy that it resides next to one of the most-hated intersections in Exeter.
12. Exit 2 off of Route 293
The sunset looks beautiful on the right, but commuters can get ugly trying to get onto this exit.
13. Colby Court and Second Street intersection in Bedford
There are a lot of places to visit in this area, but you won't be getting there any time soon with the traffic that can build up here.
