BAYONNE, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — Sunday night traffic has been a major headache for travelers trying to cross from New Jersey to New York.

A full closure of the Bayonne Bridge created conditions that some have described as “insane.”

As CBS2’s Tony Aiello found during an exclusive report, Perth Amboy was like one big parking lot on Sunday night. It was so bad that Mayor Wilda Diaz decided to stream the madness.

"Lovely" Bayonne is my old home town. Only
the morons at the Port Authority could cook up
an idea like closing the bridge at the end of a
summer weekend.

I can only imagine what it was like. In 66 I was with friends I met in New York the Bronx and we drove 30 miles outside of the City to attend a summer national dragstrip event which took three hours and the traffic was moving.............slowly !
