Central Parkway And Merrick Road Merrick, New York
The two consecutive Merrick Road traffic lights on Beach Dr and Central Parkway need to have their timing aligned. At current, there is a very dangerous situation brewing. The light at the corner of Beach and Merrick Rd stays green for Merrick Road Traffic 5-10 seconds longer than the light at Central and Merrick Road. Eastbound Drivers attempting to make a Northbound left off of Merrick Road on to Central at the Central light think they have the time and right of way to do so as their light turns yellow. But the Westbound Merrick Road traffic attempting to get through the Beach and Central lights think they've got the right of way. Traffic on Merrick Road moves fast, and I've seen several cars almost plow into drivers attempting the left turn at Central. This is a huge problem waiting to happen and needs to be amended immediately. Very dangerous.
