I’m writing in response to “Blue Point intersection is very dangerous” [Just Sayin’, Dec. 17].

This intersection already has a traffic control device. It’s a stop sign. Drivers need to obey the rules of the road.

Operators driving straight have the right of way. Operators attempting a turn need to yield the right of way. I would venture a guess that the majority of those accidents referred to by the letter writer involved a driver making a left turn.

Please don’t add another traffic light on Montauk Highway. All this will do is cause more people to avoid the area and not patronize local businesses, mine included.
