From fear of getting into an accident to spending way too much time at a red light and don't even get me started on 'roundabout-illiterate' drivers.

What Rockford intersections give you the BIGGEST headaches?

More importantly would be why they make you say things behind he wheel that your kids shouldn't hear.

I've lived in Rockford for almost 30 years and I still don't quite understand why it takes so damn long to get across town. I've lived in much bigger cities too, so what's up with that?

Long red lights...

One-way streets that make no sense...

Roads that change names with no rhyme or reason...

Drivers who don't pay attention to traffic pattern changes...

Roundabouts that make some driver's heads explode...

3. Mulford Road and Riverside Boulevard

"If you're turning left (off of Mulford) to head west on Riverside in that double turn lane... I have almost gotten hit so many times." (Becky CS)

I really wish people would spend more time reading the road signs, maybe they'd learn to not turn so wide from the inside lane.

YOU CAN TURN LEFT FROM BOTH LANES!!!!!!
