The asses in the seats at all the Transportation Bureaucracies seem to be chosen based upon their inability to serve the public they are charged to support.
Instead they go out of their way to impose their small minded central planning ideas based on "they know better".
Below is an old example from California in the 1970s, exposed by Joan Didion.
There are many other examples. One of the latest was the idiocy of Carpool Lanes on the Freeways in New Jersey that were already over stressed by poor planing and inadequate peak capacity.
Now the elite fools in NYC are continuing their idiotic tradition.
Could these asses, just for once, act to help the situation instead of making it worse, ON PURPOSE!
Why do these "we know best" idiots have to keep making government our enemy?
Please, Vote their bosses out of office so they may be replaced! m/r
Time for some traffic problems in Manhattan!
City officials have intentionally ground Midtown to a halt with the hidden purpose of making drivers so miserable that they leave their cars at home and turn to mass transit or bicycles, high-level sources told The Post.
Today’s gridlock is the result of an effort by the Bloomberg and de Blasio administrations over more than a decade of redesigning streets and ramping up police efforts, the sources said.
“The traffic is being engineered,” a former top NYPD official told The Post, explaining a long-term plan that began under Mayor Mike Bloomberg and hasn’t slowed with Mayor de Blasio.
“The city streets are being engineered to create traffic congestion, to slow traffic down, to favor bikers and pedestrians,” the former official said.
“There’s a reduction in capacity through the introduction of bike lanes and streets and lanes being closed down.”
