The real reason for New York City's traffic nightmare

NY Post  . . . "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."

. . . “ 'They’re not coming out and saying it, but they’re doing other things to cut down on traffic coming into city, things such as taking streets that had four lanes and making them three by creating bike lanes, or putting a plaza in, creating pedestrian islands,” the source said.

“ 'They’re purposefully cutting down on the number of vehicles coming into the city by cutting down the space for vehicles.”

"The source said de Blasio “doesn’t care about traffic” and noted that the mayor could now blame congestion on President-elect Donald Trump, whose Trump Tower in Midtown is now ringed with security.

“ 'He really doesn’t care,” the source said. “Instead of working around it and helping it out, he’ll just blame everything on Trump.' ” . . .

     It's a Democrat thing; just as Obama wanting people to blame the Republicans for the government shutdown. Obama spent large sums of money to block off open-air memorials including even roadside pullouts where they could be seen from a distance. 
     One Obama administration employee put it this way “It’s a cheap way to deal with the situation,” an angry Park Service ranger in Washington says of the harassment. “We’ve been told to make life as difficult for people as we can. It’s disgusting.”
     Another Ranger said, "Apparently, they want the public to feel the pain"
     Petulant and vindictive, was it not? The Tunnel Dweller
