Question of the Day: Traffic Light

Where would you put a traffic light in Farmingdale?

There are always those intersections where making a left hand turn is impossible or the speeding is out of hand or merging is extremely difficult.

Where do you think there needs to be a traffic light in Farmingdale to solve these situations? What's difficult to do there driving-wise? Tell us in the comments.

I agree with you Leigh-Mary.. coming out of the stop & stop to go straight across to woodward parkway is ridiculous.. everybody speeds.

If it was possible, I'd replace every stop sign with a traffic light along with a red light camera. These "adults" who drive on Long Island act like children who always try to get away with something. People need to grow up and stop acting like the laws don't apply to them.

There needs to be a light at the end of Quaker Meeting House Road by Bethpage Road (near the golf course). At least a blinking red light. People coming down Quaker have a yield sign but a lot do not stop or even slow down. They fly down the hill without even slowing down.

There have been many accidents at the intersection of Merritts Rd and Northwest Drive and a traffic light would make sense there. This is in front of the Best Supermarket/ CVS parking lot. While I realize that the next traffic light going north on Merritts is close by - this is a very busy intersection with the businesses there and all the residents needing to cross that intersection (homes south of Fallwood pkwy and those in Viceroy). Also, cars driving north on Merritts, coming over the crest of Bethpage Pkwy are difficult to see for those exiting Northwest Dr. and going south on Merritts Rd. In my opinion, the expense for a traffic light at this location is a good use of our tax dollars.

Leigh-Mary - good location for a traffic light. I wonder why a light was not installed there based upon the Stop and Shop traffic survey? Oh - I know why - the survey must have said that the traffic would not increase much on Motor Ave once the supermarket opened. Anyone know what the survey said? My best guess is that it's prediction that traffic would not increase significally was.........wrong. I feel bad for the residents that live on Motor Av....................
