Silver Spring bus stop voted 'sorriest' in the US

- Hey DMV - want to find the worst bus stop in the U.S.?

You don’t need to look any further than your own backyard!

According to Streetsblog USA - the winner of the 2016 Sorriest Bus Stop in America tournament is a stop in Silver Spring, Maryland.

Located at Route 29 and Crestmoor Drive - the stop blew away the competition - an unmarked zone in Kansas City - by hundreds of votes.

"In terms of pure danger, it’s hard to top this tiny refuge next to a state highway with no crossing to protect pedestrians from speeding traffic," said the blog site while describing the stop. The site also posted comments from nearby residents who described the unsafe location of the stop.

The good news, the blog site said, was that the exposure from the contest may lead to safer conditions. They say WMATA, Montgomery County Department of Transportation, and the Maryland State Highway Association are all now aware of the stop’s dangerous location.
