Where Are Miller Place-Rocky Point's Most Ignored Stop Signs?

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

There are hundreds of stop signs in the Miller Place-Rocky Point area, 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.

Do you know of a location where a stop sign is frequently rolled through or ignored?

So... in your world, threatening "4 young kids" with severe bodily harm and injury is an "adult doing the right thing"??

No, In my world: These 4 young adults would have been smart enough to apologize for running the stop signs and told me it wouldn't happen again. And if you think it's OK for these young adults to give me the finger when they were clearly wrong, you are part of the problem.

So you are the person who people owe apologies to any time someone runs a stop sign? I never said that they were justified in giving you the finger... many kids today are way too disrespectful, as many were when we were kids. But I do remember also being taught when I was a child that two wrongs don't make a right, so your telling them what you would do and how you would do it makes you just as wrong, if not more so, because you should know better! Stop being part of the problem!

No, I'm the person who demands an apology from disrespectful young adults when they are out of line. I'm also the person who will accept their apology and hopes the young adults realizes they were wrong. There are way more disrespectful kids today than when I grew up. Just the thought of a neighbor catching you out of line was enough to keep you in line. I don't know when or where you grew up but adults and neighbors were respected unquestionably. I'm 52 years old and still call all my parents friends Mr or Mrs to this day. Keep taking the non-chalant attitude toward the disrespectful young thugs and pretty soon they will be taking over your neighbor. Let me know how that works out for you.

I agree with you completely! There is no respect anymore! The fact that any adult doesn't SEE this means they are part of the problem!! I'm with you a 100 percent on this, Captain. It's a shame that not enough people think this way!!
