What’s Your Traffic Commute Headache?
Utica, NY (WIBX) - After some folks in NYC became frustrated by the closure of Lincoln Tunnel, we here at WIBX decided to ask you about your worst commute… Most of you pointed to the roundabout on Genesee Street in Utica as a major cause of frustration, but others, especially those who drive or work outside for a living, say their major cause for a commute headache stems from people texting and driving.
Here’s what others had to say:
We also asked Mayor Robert Palmieri about his traffic headaches, and he says he just wants a faster commute to his favorite eateries. “The traffic nightmare is the fact that because the city is booming so well at this point, is trying to get from the Harbor to Baggs Square for dinner … It’s been taking me at least 5-minutes at this point …I can’t wait to get to Baggs Square and eat,” he said jokingly.
The new Roundabout on Genesee Street in Utica (seen in video below) has been named by many commuters, as a source of their traffic headaches, primarily because of improper use and drivers not signaling.
