Rarely a good thing when somebody drives into scaffolding around a building

Crash into scaffolding in East Boston

That's what happened around 8:20 a.m. at the Loftel hotel construction site at Porter and Orleans streets in East Boston and now the surrounding roads are blocked off as crews try to fix the damage.

If only there were fewer traffic lights and higher speed limits this never would have happened! But why stop there? If you think about it there are dozens of ways in which the driver of the car who hit the scaffolding can be removed from any and all blame.

Looks like the sun pointing at the cars, maybe the driver was blinded by the Suns raze.

Boutique hotel...
Channel 7.announced that the building will be a boutique hotel..
When people watch tv and see how Eastie is changing people will want to live in Eastie.

Have you noticed what's going up on the East Boston waterfront - or what prices on Jeffreys Point are like?

In any case, here's some details on the hotel - which is actually a creative reuse of an old factory.

when one uses Apple maps instead of Google maps for driving directions.

Possibly that's what happens when one is using Tindr or Facebook or Match or texting instead of paying attention to the road he/she is driving on... purely speculation of course.

I don't know why, but I always laugh at this malapropism. Kind of reads like Grindr for Tiny people.

I'm sure the poor driver was blinded by the sun or blinded by the darkness. That scaffolding needs to pay better attention to its surroundings.

Seems like every week there is at least one new building drive through event.

Yeah. That's it.

It can't be that drivers are idiots or speeding. Nope.

Before interacting with Mark Kaepplein, please read this: http://www.wcvb.com/news/local/metro-west/neighbor-criticizes-couple-for...

Here's the first paragraph:

Some might applaud an Arlington couple's decision to adopt two special needs girls from China, but one neighbor accused them of putting an unnecessary financial burden on the town and its school system.

I have no idea who kisumxes is. It ain't me, nor is it anyone I know.

I don't need to be dredging up things on the Internet to know what kind of racist, sociopathic asshole MarkK is. He delivers evidence to uHub daily.

So, whatever he's done in Arlington is irrelevant to me. What does matter to me is his decision not to let Alvin Sealey Junior to rest in peace.

Would it be smart to place cement jersey barier at that corner for safety reasons.
