I used to hear as a kid, "takes three deaths to get a stop sign." I always thought that was cruel but when I was in my accident years ago in a spot that is going to become a site for the new building proposal in Nesconset, as well as many others in years past, nothing has changed. WE HAVE TO PUSH THE ISSUE and I think too many spots need to be regulated and drivers have to be a little more respectful with their licences. Its a priveledge NOT a right to have one and this SIGNAGE should happen soon!

We cant base our traffic control on the low•est common denominator, or we would have a stop sign on every corner and a speed limet of 3 m.p.h. http://www.thefreedictionary.com/lowest+common+denominator

I live on Landing Avenue and I invite a patrol car to sit in my driveway for one hour in the morning and clock the speed of the drivers as they pass my house. I have seen cars in upwards of 50mph just between Edgewood Ave and the train crossing. Yes, this is a busy street (knew that when I bought the house), but until people are ticketed more on this stretch of road, more tragedies will occur.

A light should also be put at Rose and Landing. So sad. Thoughts and prayers for the family.

This accident ocurred on Oakside Drive and Landing, not Oakside Road and Landing. Although both intersections are dangerous, When coming from Oakside Drive making a left on Landing Ave, you cannot safely cross onto Landing Ave if cars are even slightly going over the speed limit. If i am correct, this tragedy ocurred when a southbound driver attempted to make a left turn onto Oakside Drive. Believe me you don't have enough reaction time to safely make that turn. Petition the town for a northbound stop sign near White Pine Court to help slow down drivers heading north on Landing Ave.

I live on the corner of Rose/Landing and there are car horns blaring all day and night. The fact is, people drive way too fast on Landing - if you actually drive the speed limit, people creep up on your tail like you're a snail! Something needs to be done about the speed limit and anyone who rides a bicycle on Landing has a death wish.

I agree with all of the motor cycle drivers that LI has become to dangerous to drive a that type of vehicle. With no bumpers or air bags for protection driving a motor cycle requires not only 100% concentration from the cycle driver but 100% concentration from all of the motorests around them. Just that one mistake by anyone can end up with a fatality. Just driving on that stretch of road with all the trees I know it can take one'e mind of the task at hand, driving the car and then a tragedy like this happens.
