Sound Off: Most-Run Stop Signs in Malverne, Lynbrook and West Hempstead

Which ones are disregarded the most?

It's something that we've all seen before - reckless drivers blowing through stop signs.

We all know how dangerous Hempstead Turnpike, Merrick Road and Ocean Avenue are, but there are a few other side streets in Malverne, West Hempstead and Lynbrook, which are considered dangerous. Part of the reason for this is because drivers don't always follow the rules of the road.

Do you know of a location in Malverne, West Hempstead or Lynbrook where a stop sign is frequently rolled through or ignored? Tell us where it is in the comments.

@AnOldFriend, "give a ticket once, and I am sure that motorist will stop at the stop sign from then on"...you can't be serious?... Additionally your plan to have a nonresident Policeman give out tickets to residents...you don't see how that could cause a problem far deeper than traffic control?

JR-Lynbrook-Allen St & Ocean Ave---Allen St & Charles St---There are a number of stop lines on ocean ave along with numerous signs that clearly say"STATE LAW DO NOT BLOCK SIDE ROADS" I MYSELF ON NUMEROUS OCCASIONS HAVE HAD MANY RUN-INS WITH DRIVERS WHO DO NOT OBEY THESE SIGNS--THEY CONSISTENTLY BLOCK THE INTERSECTION SO THAT MOTORISTS LIKE MYSELF ARE UNABLE TO MAKE A RIGHT OR LEFT TURN---DURING RUSH HOUR ESPECIALLY THE DRIVERS FROM OCEAN AVENUE DO NOT WANT TO WAIT FOR THE LIGHT TO CHANGE ON PENNINSULA BLVD--THEY PROCEED TO MAKE A RIGHT ON TO ALLEN STREET RACE UP THE BLOCK TO THE STOP SIGN( THEY USUALLY RUN THE STOP SIGN) AND PROCEED TO MAKE A LEFT ONTO CHARLES ST.TO GET TO PENNINSULA BLVD FASTER. wE AVE MORE KIDS ON THIS BLOCK WHICH IS A GOOD THING-BUT WE ALSO NEED TO KEP THEM OUT OF HARMS WAY!

Save the caps, we get it. I have a grid at my intersection of Hempstead Ave, although no one seems to know it. Making a left at my street is almost impossible every day after work. What can I do? Get into a fist fight ever day over this? Having " run- ins" with other drivers will only get you in trouble. Besides accepting human nature for what it is, we can only hope that the right people will read this, and do something. If drivers knew they were likely to get a $75.00 ticket for this, they would think twice about doing it.

Is anyone from Malverne Village Hall or Police reading this I hope?? Alnwick and Bond Ave. in Malverne is ridiculous. Drivers treat it like it's a discretionary stop sign. I have avoided numerous accidents by anticipating it will be ignored and slowing down, and I have the right-of-way! Also Malverne needs to get their act together and put a stop sign on Oak and Bond Ave., as well as the intersections along the Westwood Train Station. There are may pedestrians and children in these areas and drivers are not slowing or stopping at these intersections. If there's no stop sign, people think they have the right-of-way and someone's going to get hit.

Jennifer, do you mean putting stop signs along Whitehall? People won't even slow down for them. The same is true for any area that drivers instinctively feel is unneccesary. I really don't like the idea of stop signs every block. The more you try to impede traffic, the less likely you will succede. And once a sign goes up, you are stuck with it. I , too, will drive very carefully through the areas you described, as well as most interior sections of Malverne, as more and more drivers now will run stop signs and make U turns.
