Residents bemoan confusing Ocean Parkway changes
Traffic changes along Ocean Parkway were supposed to make the roadway safer, but some say it may be having the opposite effect.
The change made last month restricts turns along the parkway with the intention of easing congestion. It's part of the state Department of Transportation's $8.5 million plan to improve safety along what's considered one of the most dangerous roadways in Brooklyn.
State Assemblyman Dov Hikind says he likes some changes in the plan, but adds that the new rules regarding right turns are so confusing that it's actually making intersections -- like the one at Avenue P -- even more of a safety hazard.
According to the assemblyman's office, the DOT is monitoring the cameras at the intersection and will later reassess how traffic is affected by the new changes.
