Description

I have lived one house from the corner of Pine St & Islip Ave for over 30 years and there is a minimum of at least 10 accidents per year at this corner. Here are the problems why:
1) The house on the corner has a stockade fence on their side yard that blocks an eastbound car's line-of-sight coming out of Pine St - so much so that the car has to actually inch up into the oncoming Southbound traffic on Islip Ave in order to see if there's traffic coming.
2) There should be a 4-way stop light at this intersection because the cars coming over the bridge are cruising at an excessive speed, thus contributing to the accidents at this corner.
I have lived here long enough to see my share of accidents (some deadly) here at this intersection.
