At the corners of Elm Drive and Midwood Cross (neighborhood of Country Estates in East Hills) and Glen Cove rd. are bus stops on a hill that are extremely dangerous. The bus stops should be graded and made flat so in inclement weather individuals aren't at risk of slipping off the hill into on coming traffic.
