Question of the Day: Is Route 24 Safe? [Poll]

The stretch of highway between Stoughton and West Bridgewater has been home to two fatal accidents in the past week.

While Route 24 technically never runs through Easton, it is a major corridor for many of the Shovel Town's commuters.

Recently, it has also been the home to some horrific highway accidents.

On July 12, , a 12-year-old from Norton, along with two other Norton residents, were killed in an afternoon accident on Route 24 on the Stoughton/Avon line, just north of Easton.

Over this past weekend,

Early Sunday morning, a Mansfield teenager and a Tiverton, R.I. man were , just north of exits 16 A and B (Route 106). in that collission.

While all of the recent collisions are unrelated, it begs the question: Is Route 24 safe? Are vehicles driving too fast? Is there improper signage? Is the road not marked correctly? Or, are all of these accidents, while tragic, unrelated to driving conditions on the highway?
