Syosset's Most-Run Stop Signs

We took readers' answers and created a poll. Vote for the most-run stop sign now.

Syosset Patch readers have spoken out to warn neighbors of dangerous roads around the neighborhood.

While the busy streets get a bad rap -- believed South Oyster Bay Road was getting too dangerous -- the weaving back roads of Syosset and Woodbury are often just as dangerous.

Do you know of a location where a stop sign is frequently rolled through or ignored? Have you had any accidents at these spots or witnessed others come close? Vote in the poll and tell us in the comments below.

Thanks Linda! What's the cross street? I'll add it to the map and if I get more, I'll add a poll for people to vote.

Chelsea Drive & Calvert Drive. It's also a bus stop

My father had that stop sign installed in the late 50's - early 60's after they moved to Calvert Dr to slow traffic down even back then!

Renee road is becoming very dangerous. My daughter was hit by a car years ago. The neighborhood had a stop sign put up in two places.People are not stopping.

Renee road is bad and has been for years. People avoiding the town traffic use this as a short cut and cars don't stop - rolling through the stop signs. I see NCPD sitting in Perry Ct. all the time so even they know people are running the stop signs. The sign at Azalea Dr. is worse because all the kids walking to/from Berry Hill School. Woodbury Way is my 2nd vote for most run stop signs.

I have seen continuous stop sign blow-offs at Birchwood Park Drive and Ketchams Road. The addition of 3 more stop sign intersection along Birchwood Park Drive has increased more speeding and blow-offs.

Ira Rd. and Miller Blvd.

The cars don't even slow down for the stop sign on Chelsea & Calvert. Not only is it a bus stop, but right by the HS & SW Middle School

At the interesection of Elliman Place/Horton Place and Anita Ave. cars often barrel through the Stop sign as though it weren't there.

Too many to list. Suffice it to say that you need to stop at an intersection even if the street you are driving on does not have a stop sign. I assume, unfortunately, that most stop signs in Syosset arer consideredf "optional" (this comes from 38 years of driving here)

Parkway Drive at Eaton Road - drivers don't even slow down.
Sy Osset August 13, 2012 at 04:46 PM
Teibrook Ave & Robert Circle

It has to be chelsea and calvert. I usually roll through that sign on my way to work at the High School. For years I didn't even notice it was there. Sometimes when the school bus is in the way I tend to speed up to pass and not even see or remember the stop sign here.
