1. Lakeview Rd./Marcus Ave. & Northern State Parkway. A driver on Lakeville Road who wants to go east on the Northern State Parkway must get on Marcus Avenue, heading east. To get on the Northern State, the driver must make a left across traffic to get on the parkway’s entrance ramp, which is adjacent to an exit ramp from the Northern State. There is a stop light on Marcus Avenue, but the rampways are close together. Mara Jacobowitz, reader, North Woodmere.

5. Hempstead Turnpike and Wantagh Parkway. A driver headed east on Hempstead Turnpike who wants to go south on the Wantagh Parkway must take Bellmore Road to get to the parkway’s entrance ramp. That ramp’s entry is just beyond the parkway’s exit ramp, and both are at a bend in Bellmore Road where there is a nearby stop sign. A confused driver could go right at the stop sign and head into traffic on Bellmore Road, which could cause the driver to turn into the parkway’s exit ramp. Tony Simonelli, reader, Massapequa.
