Vote for America's 'Least Crossable Streets'

We were told to look both ways before crossing the street—not walk two miles, uphill both ways, in the snow before crossing the street.

"In most American cities you can find streets that turn what should be short, easy walking trips into excursions so long and humiliating that you might as well drive. Or, if you don’t have that option, you can take your chances playing a high-stakes game of Frogger," writes Angie Schmitt.

To dole out some public shame to the places that allows such anti-pedestrian conditions to exist, Schmitt and Streetsblog called on readers to crowdsource a set of examples of these "monster roads" from around the country. There is still time to vote on the list, which includes streets in Maryland, Tennessee, Idaho, and Arizona, among others.
