The man was drunk. He stopped his car in the middle of the ramp from 480 westbound to 71 southbound. A witness called police, saying the man's foot was on the brake and the car was in drive.

PREBLE, N.Y. -- Frank Suits Jr., the CEO of Suit-Kote, has been worried about the national debt for many years. He's so concerned that he had employees at his paving company put up a huge sign near the Preble Exit along Interstate 81 that shows drivers the size of the current national debt. On Monday, it read "$21.1 trillion." Suits said his employees get on a man-lift to update the sign every time the debt goes up by $100 billion. He takes a photo of it and sends it to the New York Congressional delegation. The recently passed federal Tax Cuts and Jobs Act - pushed by President Donald Trump and the GOP Congress - is expected to add $1.9 trillion to the national debt by 2028, according to nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office. On Monday, another huge sign was added to an adjacent building. It said "Welcome Ivanka Trump." Donald Trump's daughter toured the facility to tout the act, which she said is helping businesses and working families keep more of their money. … [Read more...] about Suit-Kote CEO, man behind I-81 debt sign, says wait and see if GOP tax cuts add to debt
