Montgomery County executive Isiah Leggett speaks with reporters about the failure of traffic signals during rush hour.
Traffic lights in Montgomery County, Maryland aren't functioning properly during rush hour for a second straight day. It will be that way tomorrow too.
The timing of the lights is supposed to change during morning and evening rush hour to accommodate heavier traffic. County executive Isiah Leggett said the problems with the computer that sets the timing will take time to repair, which means county workers will have to fix the signals at each intersection manually.
There are close to 800 intersections with signals in Montgomery County. Riders will be able to take the county's Ride On Buses for free again tomorrow because of the increased congestion.
