Wednesday Winners (and Losers)

A weekly roundup of good deeds, missteps, heroic feats and epic failures in the tri-state region and beyond.

Winners

PATH — The “Summer of Hell” at Penn Station has diverted thousands of new riders to PATH trains, and they’re running with an overall on-time performance of nearly 98 percent.

NJ Assemblyman John McKeon and Governor Chris Christie — The governor signed Ralph and David’s Law, a piece of bipartisan legislation introduced by Assemblyman McKeon that strengthens drunk driving penalties and establishes a new crime of “strict liability vehicular homicide.”

Camden, NJ — The City of Camden will receive $750,000 from the U.S. Department of the Interior to remediate a brownfield site and develop a new park along the North Camden waterfront.

Losers

Connecticut Department of Transportation — First they found out their environmental review of the proposed garage at New Haven’s Union Station didn’t pass muster, and then they had to announce the launch of the Hartford Line was going to be pushed back again.

NYPD 94th Precinct — After bicyclist Neftaly Ramirez was killed by a hit-and-run driver in Brooklyn, the 94th Precinct defended the driver and took to the streets to ticket people on bikes.
