A gridlock alert is in effect for NYC and will probably remain in effect until New Year’s Day. What does this mean to drivers who must travel in New York during this time?
Traffic will be heavily congested during the next few weeks. The annual Christmas tree lighting festivities, as well as Holliday Tourists will contribute to Gridlock.
New York State Law basically mandates that you cannot enter an intersection unless there is sufficient space to accommodate your vehicle on the other side of the intersection. If you get caught blocking the box, you may be issued a ticket for Spillback. The summons carries two points and a fine.
