Queens lawmaker urges DOT to install better signage along Main Street Busway alerting motorists of changes


Councilwoman Sandra Ung is urging the city Department of Transportation (DOT) to improve signage alerting motorists they are about to illegally enter the Flushing Main Street Busway.

Ung sent a letter to DOT Commissioner Ydanis Rodriguez on Wednesday, March 9, about an issue that was brought to her attention regarding camera-enforced restrictions along the street. 

The councilwoman’s office was alerted that drivers have been receiving summonses, in some cases multiple times, for failing to turn off Main Street at 37th Avenue where the busway begins. The intersection is patrolled by a traffic camera.
