This spot on West Broadway in Port Jefferson is what I call "the Bermuda Triangle" of Port Jeff. I have lived there for 40+ years and have witnessed at least 80 accidents of varying kinds. I's a State Road and the state won't put up a guard rail to alleviate this situation; in happens in all types of weather, not just snow. The people at 309 West Broadway were just very lucky that they or their vehicle were not in the driveway yesterday.
