Too many times I’ve seen residents from the condos on the eastbound side of Westborough cut across 6 lanes of traffic to save time. Many drivers too lazy leaving the Valero Gas Station will exit onto the west bound Westborough direction across three lanes to the left turn lane back down in the east bound direction. Some Police visibility might be needed for a while.
