    Lol where you think the traffic comes from?
    All the cars that don’t go into Manhattan?

    I been saying this for a while but do we have an advocate group looking out for motorists interest? The way train riders have that strap hangers group?

    Motorists have been getting ****ed in NYC for a minute and nobody is looking out for us.
    This ****ing stupid mother ****ing, dumb, *** *** mayor been screwing us ever since his vision zero garbage.

    Nobody speak up for motorist tho. We just keep taking it in the *** with nobody looking out.

    *** *** Deblasio. That clown will never get my vote.

    April 2, 2019 - Congestion Pricing Won't Work, New Yorkers Say, Quinnipiac University Poll Finds; Voters Say Scrap Elite School Test, Increase Diversity [​IMG]

    Trend Information
    Sample and Methodology detail

    New York City voters oppose congestion pricing 54 - 41 percent and say 52 - 40 percent that it will not be effective in reducing traffic, according to a Quinnipiac University Poll released today.

    Manhattan voters are divided as 48 percent support congestion pricing, with 51 percent opposed, the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University Poll finds. Opposition in the other boroughs ranges from 52 - 43 percent in Staten Island to 64 - 30 percent in The Bronx.

    White voters are divided, with 47 percent supporting congestion pricing and 49 percent opposed. Opposition is 63 - 33 percent among black voters and 58 - 39 percent among Hispanic voters.

    Congestion pricing will reduce traffic, 52 percent of Staten Island voters say, as 44 percent say it won't be effective. Voters in other boroughs say it won't work, ranging from 50 - 43 percent "no" in Manhattan to 62 - 34 percent "no" in The Bronx.

    A total of 90 percent of New York City voters say traffic congestion is a "very serious" or "somewhat serious" problem. Of that 90 percent, 36 percent say Mayor Bill de Blasio is more to blame, as 16 percent say Gov. Andrew Cuomo is more to blame. Another 19 percent blame neither and 13 percent blame both leaders.

    New York City subway service is "not so good" or "poor," 62 percent of voters say, as 36 percent say it's "excellent" or "good." Bus quality in the city is "excellent" or "good," 48 percent of voters say, while 46 percent say it's "not so good" or "poor."

    "New Yorkers give a Bronx cheer to congestion pricing. Lawmakers in Albany approved the plan, but city voters aren't in favor even if it means revenue raised will help fix mass transit. And there's a clear need for improvement. Six in ten New Yorkers rate subway service as 'not so good' or 'poor,'" said Mary Snow, polling analyst for the Quinnipiac University Poll.

    New York City voters oppose 48 - 41 percent having the mayor and City Council take responsibility for city subways and buses.

    See how long it takes to do one ltitle repair on a platform???? you get to see the price of the repair and the contractor.... dudes get million dollar contracts just to fix some stairs or redo a portion of an entrance, then it'll take 9 months to complete... a job worth 50k and a weeks worth of labor..

    Its ridiculous. The amount of waste is insane.

    They have a mobile wash unit that comes in their truck and is supposed to wash the entrances to the subways. By me they come up and sit in the truck and do nothing. I remember specifically one day comin home from work, I walk up the stairs and literally a piece of **** was on the stair. They came at night, next morning that piece of **** was still there.

    Summertime is almost here so forget it. Last summer they would pull up with music blasting then get out of the truck and start dancing.

    Another instance, my boy worked on the 2nd ave line that just opened. He was working there the final weekends before opening. Just on sat and sun, he was clearing 2 stacks for the weekend. I couldnt believe it when he showed me the stub.
