Mineola’s Most-Run Stop Signs

Which ones are disregarded the most?

Chances are either you or someone you know has rolled through a “Stop sign” or come to a “sliding stop” at some point in their vehicular career. With the approach of school opening, the police will once again be starting their “Slow Down, Schools Open” campaigns. But what if there is no “Stop” sign? Do you slow down anyway just to be safe because you know others don’t?

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

People barely slow down at ANY of the stop signs on Garfield between Herricks and Mineola Blvd. One of these days, somebody is going to get hit, and then it will be too late.

needs repeating: the corner of Kennedy Lane and Latham Road off Herricks and the corner of Latham Road and Watkins Drive, which is also a school bus stop for several buses. I've witnessed dozens of near misses and horn blowing and drivers screaming at one another!! something needs to be done, NOW!

Foch Blvd between Hillside and Jericho! Some don't even slow to a rolling stop!

I live between Jericho and Jackson and pretty much all the stop signs through out the neighborhood are rolled or Ignored. The worst times are at night and during school when kids are walking to a from school.

I nominate the stop signs at the corner of my block -Wardwell and Jefferson. It is a quick cut thru block bypassing the Herricks intersection so a lot of people are in a hurry but come on -- slow down and stop ! Better safe then sorry .
