Petition for new Traffic Light in Great Neck
**NEED YOUR SIGNATURES FOR NEW TRAFFIC LIGHT***
A few of us living in the Tuscany Court complex on Middle Neck Rd are putting together a petition for new traffic light to be installed at the intersection of Middle Neck Rd. and Clover Drive. It is where Young Israel of Great Neck and a few other small businesses are located along with local residents. Over and over again, we have seen the danger caused by cars, trucks, speeding down Middle Neck Rd in both directions disregarding speed limit and yield for pedestrians crossings. The lack of consideration for the safety of others is sadly overwhelming! This has put the local residents, especially the kids that attend the Young Israel of Great Neck in harms way.
***Please read the proposal below and sign to show your support***
"In order to remedy the dangerous traffic condition noted above, and to prevent pedestrian injury, it is proposed that a Traffic Light be installed at the intersection of Middle Neck Road and Clover Drive. While a different traffic control device, such as a Stop Sign or a Yield Sign, might be effective, it is unlikely that this will remedy the condition. Due to blind spots in the stretch of roadway on Middle Neck Road between Allenwood Road and Clover Drive, the Stop sign or Yield Sign would not be easily visible. To most effectively remedy this dangerous condition to pedestrians, it is proposed that a Traffic Light be installed at the above-referenced intersection, and that a Radar Speed Sign be installed while Traffic Light installation is pending."
