Four corners is a main intersection that brings together Mable Avenue, Kensico Road, Broadway and Franklin Avenue and brings residents to parts of Thornwood, Pleaasantville and Hawthorne. Resident Lindsay Rosselli Sergeant said although four corners is a main intersection of the town, it should be avoided at times.
"Four corners is the worst!" Resselli Sergeant wrote in a Facebook post on The Mount Pleasant Daily Voice's page. "At rush hour, you don't even want to go near there, so much traffic."
In Hawthorne, residents such as Patricia Donnelly are concerned about certain intersections not because of traffic but because of safety. Donnelly said the intersection of Elwood Avenue and Frankford Street particularly is a concern.
"The drivers on Frankford are supposed to stop," Donnelly said. "But I was hit there once, and almost many other times, when they run the stop sign."
Resident Erica Babad said the Route 141 and Elwood Ave. intersection is bad because of a lack of sight going into traffic.
"The visibility is terrible if you're turning left on Elwood from 141," Babad said.
