Council President Young calls on traffic lights to be synchronized in a resolution designed to fight gridlock in Baltimore City


BALTIMORE, MD – City Council President Bernard C. “Jack” Young will introduce a resolution at Monday’s City Council meeting calling on the Department of Transportation to ensure that traffic lights city-wide are properly synchronized prior to the start of Baltimore’s “Don’t Block the Box” program.


As part of Mayor Pugh’s comprehensive traffic safety campaign, blocking the box will be a traffic violation with a $90 ticket.


Ensuring that traffic lights city-wide are properly synchronized ahead of the Baltimore City Department of Transportation’s “Don’t Block the Box” program will assist motorists in adjusting to the Administration’s new traffic initiative, making it more likely to succeed in its goal of improving traffic flows and less likely to penalize drivers inadvertently stuck because of situations beyond their control.


WHO: Council President Young


WHAT: City Council resolution for traffic light synchronization.


WHEN: Monday, April 23, 2018 at 5:00 p.m.


WHERE: Baltimore City Hall, fourth floor, Council Chambers. Please bring photo I.D. for entrance into City Hall.
