Tell Us: Blowing Through Stop Signs

We know its happening with alarming regularity. What are Farmingdale's worst rolled through stop signs.

All year, we've seen trouble on Farmingdale's highways. Readers, both pedestrians and drivers weighed in and gave suggestions on how the issue should be addressed.

We'd like your opinion on stop signs:

  • Do you know of a location where a stop sign is frequently rolled through or ignored?
  • Are there any spots in town that are notorious for drivers that break the rules?
  • Have you had any accidents at these spots or witnessed others come close?

Tell us in the comments below. We'll add the intersection to the map on the ride side of your screen.

There was a cop at the secatague/melville intersection a few days ago... But, his car was facing south towards the train station... I would really like to know what good it is if hes not even facing the traffic and is unable to see whats going on behind him. But i agree with a few other people in this post, its not just farmingdale... Its all over nassau county... Actually, its pretty much all over the island.

Everyone on every block has a stop sign that people blow through. The Police Department does do enforcement but it's impossible to enforce every stop sign all the time. Besides traffic enforcement officers are answering calls for service, patriolling, taking reports ect. It would be nice to have a cop on every corner but the resources just aren't there, never have been never will be. Remember while you are complaining about the stop sign on your block there are 100's of other people complaining about stop sign's on their block and everyone wants its addressed ASAP. So don't be so quick to blame the cops put the blame where it belongs with the reckless drivers that blatantly disregard stop signs and lights. An Officer just lost his life yesterday maybe some of you should maybe give the cops a little break from your complaints about them at least till after the funeral sheesh. May Officer Oliveri rest in peace and may his family take comfort in knowing that there are some of us that appreciate what they do. I think it's very selfish to to go and make a bunch of stop sign complaints now, it can wait a few days. RIP

The corner of Graham St and Michel Ave. It really needs to be an all way stop. People roll through it constantly. There was a recent accident there and I hear near-misses all the time. Very scary.
