Staten Island Columnist Hammers MTA opinion writer Tom Wrobleski has some harsh words for the Metropolitan Transportation Authority: “They simply don’t care. How else can you explain the decision . . . to close travel lanes on the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge in order to do some paving work this week? During the daytime? The entire Brooklyn-bound upper level of the bridge was closed on Tuesday [December 27] between 8:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m.,” resulting in “colossal” traffic jams. Wrobleski adds, “When traffic is caused by agency action, the blood just boils. It makes you believe the conspiracy theories that government in New York is engaged in deliberately making driving a nightmare in this city in order to get people to forsake their cars.”
