Where Are Commack's Most Ignored Stop Signs?

Stop signs are not optional, but they're sometimes treated as if they are.

There are hundreds of stop signs in Commack, but unfortunately, too often are they completely ignored by folks in a rush.

These "stop-tional" signs are the ones that drivers treat more as a suggestion than a command. The ones in which a car comes down the road, slightly slows down and then accelerates through the stop sign.

Do you know of a location where a stop sign is frequently rolled through or ignored?

Share where it is in the comments section, below.

Most people do not know how to do a 4 way stop sign, its in the same lines of parallel parking, just doesn't get reviewed enough.

Paul L - glad you are a careful driver. Doesn't mean we all couldn't benefit from reviewing the rules of the road once in awhile. Being careful is the first step but knowing that only the first car under a center turning light has the right to make the turn if they are sitting under it as it turns red and not the following three is only one example. You may know this but not everyone does! Littleshamrock- lets not take this personally. As a 30 year commack resident, I've seen people get sloppier and sloppier with their road manners. You said "keep yourself safe" and "keeping eyes open" but that doesn't protect yourself from the driver next to you who doesn't care about you, only about getting to their destination. That's why I suggested defensive driving for all!

I've seen more than my share of idiots making dangerous bonehead moves on the roads but they are not the majority. You were painting with a broad brush.

Yes Paul. I like to think of it as an angular brush with a point at the end. Nice play on words right ;o)
