I've been driving around my hometown since the glorious 80's, and by this point, I've been on just about every road in the Brass City. Waterbury has a lot of hills, it's a typical New England town built way before paving was perfected. So you'll encounter a lot of intersections that are governed by a stop or yield sign, instead of a traffic light.
There have been vast improvements to the city's infrastructure and streets over the past 20 years. A lot of the worst intersections have been redone with new traffic lights, new road signs, re-graded, re-paved, etc. I still hate quite a few though, you know, the intersections where you have to sit through two, three cycles of traffic signals, where someone blows a stop sign daily, or speeding up one of the many hills and cuts you off.
I've gathered together 10 of what I think are Waterbury's worst intersections. Here are the places where you really need to pay attention, and look both ways many times before you pull into oncoming traffic.
