Lautenberg blasts Port Authority over toll hikes

Lautenberg blasts Port Authority over toll hikes

In a hearing today, U.S. Sen. Frank R. Lautenberg admonished the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey and its deputy executive director over its tolling practices, saying steep rate hikes are unfair to commuters.

“When I was commissioner (of the Port Authority), the toll to cross our bridges and tunnels was two dollars. In today’s money, that would be slightly more than five dollars,” said Lautenberg (D-Cliffside Park) at the hearing. “But today, Port Authority tolls are out of control. It now costs $12 to cross between New Jersey and New York. When it costs $12 to drive your car across a bridge in America, something is wrong.”  (Eder, NJBIZ)

  1. The Port Authority is taking everyone’s safety & security in jeopardy by undermining all the counterterrorism measures that have been put in place by allowing crimes such as the illegal policy of desposing lost valid passports in the garbage that are found in the Port Auhority Bus Terminal. Now just imagine the damage that a terrorist cell could do with those valid lost passports or an identity theft ring.

    Also, the Port Authority turns a blind eye to the rampant theft of lost property from inside of the Port Authority Bus Terminal’s Lost & Found Dept. by their supervisors. Google “Donna Lebourne abc news.” & watch the video, or click on the link below. 

In this age of global terrorism and rampant identity theft, the Port Authority is a reckless shameful disgusting embarrassment of bi-state transportation agency when it comes to safety & security in this area. To ignore this gaffe would be a crime on all levels of local, state & federal government, who have the power to put a stop to this madness. Action must be taken against these corrupt incompetent criminals in the Port Authority before another terrorist attack takes place & more innocent lives are lost due to their utter disregard about our safety and security not to mention their disgraceful feeling of self entitlement to patron’s lost property at the PABT.

Google “found, stolen, trashed by PA.” See the link below.
