Talk Back: What's the Most Ignored Stop Sign in Town?

You see it everyday. People just gliding through a stop sign. But which is the most abused?

Typically most drivers will stop at four way stop intersections given the greater potential to hit another car. But when it's a double or single stop sign, it seems a good majority just barely slow down.

What's the most ignored stop sign in your neighborhood. Post below and then we'll do a ranking of the most dangerous stop sign areas to avoid!

stop signs are suppose to be in place for safety,not for revenue.The reson many people blow thru is because of the stop sign at Nelson Ave. They are too close to each other. The town has gotten a little over zealous with these signs.I also live on Maple Street and I am tired of these signs.If you want people to slow down,park your cars on the road,It works great,and we dont tie up a police car.

All of them in Sayville, behind town, south of Montauk Hwy.

Middle Road/Seaman Ave/McConnell Ave...Vehicles turning left onto Middle Rd from Seaman Ave. are frequently ignored by others doing the "roll through" maneuver. Also, landscaping at the corner makes visibility a challenge!

That is the most convuluted four-way stop around because the north/south stop roads are offset by so much. It's confusing when it shouldn't be, and I say this as an experienced driver. Looking 30' ahead to see if somebody is pulling onto Middle Road is counterintuitive. Not justifying the roll-through stops at all, but definitely a negative comment about whoever decided that four-way stop was a good solution.

Yes, I agree! Vehicles exiting Seaman Ave need to pull well forward of the "stop line" in order to be seen by east/west bound traffic. A traffic engineering mess (and an accident waiting to happen) that we have to deal with daily.
