Turn only lane on Country Club Road causing problems for BX drivers

Residents say the right-turn only lane causes traffic

Residents say the right-turn only lane causes traffic to line up for miles on Country Club Road.

THE BRONX - Drivers in Country Club say one problem spot is causing major delays during their commutes.

The intersection at Country Club Road and Jarvis Avenue has a right-turn only lane, but people say many drivers ignore the markings and plow straight through. Many residents actually agree with those law-breaking drivers and say that going straight should be an option because forcing people to turn right causes traffic to line up for miles.

Politicians from Community Board 10 say something needs to be done, so they're planning to contact the DOT soon. People are hoping that leads to a resolution because cops have picked up their presence in the area and will often ticket people who disobey the turn lane.
