New Jersey authorities may press charges against ‘Trump train’ participants who blocked traffic

Trump supporters who participated in a caravan that blocked traffic on the Garden State Parkway in New Jersey may faces charges, State Police Superintendent Patrick Callahan said Monday.

“I want to be clear, that situation on the Parkway yesterday was irresponsible and dangerous,” Callahan said during Gov. Phil Murphy’s regular coronavirus briefing, later specifically mentioning those who were at the front of the caravan, according to POLITICO.

“There’s plenty of ways for people to make their voices heard, but when they endanger the lives of those out there traveling our highways and byways, there’s really no excuse for it,” Callahan said. “And it gave us great cause for concern.”

On Sunday, dozens of cars flying pro-Trump regalia stopped traffic along one of New Jersey’s main highways, creating a major traffic jam. Another pro-Trump convey stopped traffic on the Mario Cuomo Bridge connecting Nyack, N.Y., to Westchester County.
