Driving in Quincy, Massachusetts
Quincy is home to some of the state’s busiest highways, including the Southeast Expressway (Interstate 93), Route 3, the Burgin Parkway and the Furnace Brookway. Within the city, Adams and Hancock streets are among the most congested roads. Traffic comes in from neighboring South Shore cities such as Braintree, Weymouth, Milton and Boston.
With over 92,000 residents, Quincy is among the 10 most populous cities in Massachusetts. It has 11 elementary schools, five middle schools and two high schools. Large employers such as State Street Bank and Stop & Shop are based there. Quincy Medical Center, Quincy College and Marina Bay restaurants also contribute to the city's steady stream of traffic.
MBTA’s Red Line makes several stops in Quincy which bring in pedestrians, cyclists and drivers on a regular interval throughout the day. The stops are Quincy Center Station, Quincy Adams Station, North Quincy Station and Wollaston Station.
There are many ways drivers can operate with negligence or recklessness, including when they miss one-way road signs, run stop signs, speed or fail to stay in their lane. Other examples are pulling out a cell phone, texting while driving or operating under the influence of alcohol. If a driver is negligent and seriously injures someone, they can be held liable for damages in a civil lawsuit. A criminal conviction for OUI or a traffic citation for speeding or other offenses can be introduced as evidence in a civil case.
In Quincy, car accidents are investigated by the Quincy Police Department, which is located at 1 Sea Street. The State Police investigate accidents on highways or state roads. Motor vehicle accidents which occur on college campuses should be reported to both Quincy Police and the school's police department.
