SOUND OFF: How Safe Are Portsmouth Roads?
As far as safety, what grade would you give roads in Portsmouth?
In the past month, there have been three serious car crashes in Portsmouth.
On Dec. 1, a Barrington man died after being involved in a head-on crash on the Mt. Hope Bridge. Only two days later, a seven-vehicle crash occurred on the Sakonnet River Bridge.
This past Wednesday, a Taunton, MA, man was transported to Rhode Island Hospital for treatment of "serious injuries" after a head-on crash on West Main Road near King's Grant.
The cause of these crashes all remain under current investigation. However, these tragic collisions have given rise to a conversation about road safety in Portsmouth.
