A NJ man claims that a NYPD traffic cop's terrible directions caused him injuries and his car damage! The Post reports, "In papers filed in Manhattan Supreme Court, Diogenes Tavarez, 61, says he was driving his car near the entrance of the Holland Tunnel last November 'when his vehicle was violently struck" by another car which had been 'directed to proceed' by the not so-eagle-eyed traffic cop." Tavarez, whose 2004 Honda had $15,000 in damages, says the cop was "negligent, careless and reckless" and was "directing traffic in said area with a total disregard for the health, safety and welfare of others." Not only is he suing the NYPD and the cop, he's also suing the city and the other driver for a grand total of $5 million.
