That whole stretch is dangerous, especially the entitled contractors that pull right out from Old Mill Rd. in the morning and expect you to just stop or slow down to let them in without any regard for the consequences.

It's only a matter of time before someone gets t-boned coming out of Old Mill Rd without stopping

let me help you @johnj and @scalloper

both locals and citiots are entitled, selfish, texting behind the wheel drivers.

Fair enough, but 99% of the time it is a work truck pulling out of Old Mill Rd. into oncoming traffic. They take this road as a shortcut to bypass the traffic up CR39 and through Water Mill. These are not locals either, they are contractors from up the island who have no regard for our way of life. That road should be banned from making left-hand turns during rush hour.

You forgot to mention the entitled drivers of those late model Hondas, complete with wings, peel & stick chrome accents, and out-of-state license plates!

Looks like we are talking ourselves into another traffic light in Watermill - A traffic light is needed right there where Old Mill comes onto 27....

They need a light at Old Mill Road, not in the middle of this one horse town ...which no one goes to other than the post office and to pick up copies at the print shop. That curb cut at the post office is scary to pull out of, let alone the kamikaze maneuver that most impatient drivers make from Old Mill.

Nope.

Old Mill needs to be a "No Left Turn" intersection.

Solves a lot of other problems a light would not.
