I see acts of road rage everyday on my commute out East. People fed up with the traffic or something...

Unfortunately, you can't really allow left turns off of Old Mill Road on to Rt 27 anymore. That intersection has become a bypass and is just too dangerous. The town needs to address this before someone is seriously injured.

Thats pretty much every left turn out here.

Time to either cut them off at the canal, or build a tunnel from the canal to Montauk.

Texting and driving is a HUGE problem, as well as drinking and driving.
