Commack's Most Dangerous Cut-Throughs?

What residential streets have become virtual busy highways for people taking shortcuts?


Some residential streets can feel like busy highways if they're frequently used as cut-throughs, and can pose a danger to unsuspecting pedestrians. In Commack, we're heard talk that Hauppauge Road and Daly Road are used when Jericho Turnpike backs up, but we're sure there's many others used to bypass the busy roadway. 

What do you think are some of the most highly used and least appropriate cut through streets in Commack and the surrounding area? What threats do they pose and how do you think traffic could be better managed or avoided?

Tell us in the comments.

Who complained now? Is this really worthy of writing about? Don't like the traffic? Don't like people driving down your street (umm, rephrase, the street you live on since you don't own the street)? Then leave Long Island and move to a desolate place where you will have the peace and solitude you desperately need. Have a great day! :-)

Wicks Road is also used as a shortcut from Commack Road to Larkfield Road and Daly Road. I see many drivers blowing the stops signs on Wicks

Seminole Dr. People use the street as a cut through from Harned/Pawnee to get to New Hwy. There are MANY children on the block and it's become quite the hazard. People speed down the block. Many times, shamefully, it's women (moms?) in minivans. Speaking of New Hwy. it's amazing how many people blatently ignore the posted speed limit of 20 mph and speed past the schools (Wood Park and Sawmill). One day, during dismissal, a guy in a pickup truck was going so fast, he almost hit me and the crossing guard. It's an on-going problem. Where are the police when you need them?

Belmar Lane is used to get from Indianhead Road to Scholar Lane where the high school is. Nobody stops at the stop sign. With many children on the block, I am waiting for day when one is hit

Absolutely. People use Dovecote to get to Jericho and bypass traffic. We tried getting additional stop signs but some residents opposed.
