GA doesn't make this stuff up, I promise you.
Former Assemblyman Carmelo Garcia posted a Patch article, "Hoboken Truck Crash Caused Red Light Increase, Significant traffic on Observer Highway: City" on Facebook yesterday.
Either Garcia didn't read his article, or else is lying like a rug, when he wrote:
These are the failures caused by the observer redesign which has only increased traffic, congestion and carbon emissions! We must do better. #WeCanWeWillWatchUsUmm, no...
The article clearly states the above average frequency of red lights at the recently renovated roadway was due to damage from a Jan. 26 motor vehicle accident.
The accident was a result of the snow removal- a dump truck crashed into a traffic signal at Observer and Willow. City officials stated, "As a result of the damage, the signal timing sequence was affected, leading to very frequent red lights along Observer Highway, causing significant traffic congestion issues in southern Hoboken since Wednesday. A second repair attempt this morning was successful, and the signal is now functioning properly. During the three weeks prior to the damage to the signal, there had been no observed deterioration in traffic conditions due to the roadway reconfiguration."
So what does this all mean?
He can, he will, watch him run for At-Large Council in 2017!
