Where Are The Most Ignored Stop Signs on the North Fork?

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

There are hundreds of stop signs on the North Fork and Shelter Island, 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.

With a crash caused by a driver , we want to hear from you.

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.

Love Lane and the North Road in Mattituck !!!! My daughter and I were hit in 2005 and my jeep flipped numerous times due to a driver who ignored that stop sign.

With my professional experience the most ignored stop sign on the North Fork and it's over sized at that is at the corner of Wiggins and Third Street in the Village of Greenport where the cars are supposed to stop to turn right to get on the ferry line or get on the North Ferry to Shelter Island. If you don't believe me go down and sit there some day!

Any road that has a stop sign on it that leads to a ferry or a bus, that sign is going to be ignored by people from up island who are late.

Ha! During the summer they're all ignored. As is politeness, common decency, consideration, attention, morals......

The stop sign on Webb Street in Greenport where it converges with First and Main Streets at Steamboat Corner. A very dangerous intersection that experiences near misses regularly.

...and you were injured. You were lucky that the injuries were not life-threatening!

The stop sign that replaced a yield sign at the intersection of Naugles Drive and West Mill Road. With more and more people moving about here on the North Fork, it is inevitably necessary that stop signs replace yield signs on our roads. Traffic isn't like it used to be...

Wells Road and Oaklawn Avenue......My parents never returned to their home after being hit there. The very next day a 4-way stop was installed at the intersection, however everyday I see vehicles driving thru-also at Oaklawn Ave and PineNeck road. Do drivers KNOW what to do at a 4-way stop intersection??
