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!

The one at Greeley and Manton as well as the one half way down the hill on Brook are constantly blown off.

Gillette & Academy in Bayport. IF they stop; most roll thru

Johnson and High Street.

I've got to nominate the corner of Middle Rd and Collins Ave. There's no stop coming the other way, and people often park in the marked off no parking section right in front of the sign, obscuring it. Just a matter of time before a pedestrian is hit...

Rollstone & Union is a contender too.

Corner of Greeley and Brook, now 2 flashing lights and 3 stop signs what does that tell you, lots from people running it are on their cell phones.

Namkee and Maple. The amount of tickets that the cops could write up there is unimaginable.
Maureen August 09, 2012 at 12:59 PM
Maple and Handsome Ave. We are lucky if the driver even slows down. Ridiculous.

Corner of Charney lane and Renee....Cops sat there last week for the first time within minutes stopped 6 cars!!!!!!!

Academy and Oakwood in Bayport. When the crossing guards aren't on duty, the high schoolers cruise through there. I've seen some go through at, easily, 30 mph.

Does anyone stop @ any stop sign? No. Everyone usually rolls thru
Kim Wallace August 09, 2012 at 03:18 PM
I'm gonna say the stop sign on the northbound side of Lincoln Avenue at the corner of China Rd and Partington Rd. right before Lincoln Avenue Elementary. Second is Astor Drive at McNeil St.
Shannon Klubes August 09, 2012 at 03:19 PM
The new one that is on Lincoln Ave. just south of the tracks. I think many people forget it is there but they don't just blow it, they fly through it without touching their brakes.

Nobody stops at McNeil and Astor, lucky if the driver even bothers to look both ways while cruising through the intersection at 40+ mph

Middle Rd and Edgewater Ave.

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!
jdavis August 11, 2012 at 02:02 AM
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.
Chris Thorpe August 11, 2012 at 06:43 PM
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.
