Traffic Jam To Simulate Casino Consequences

Opponents of gambling caused traffic jam in Massachusetts to protest placing a casino there. This happened on Saturday, when gambling foes caused traffic congestion explaining it by the fact that this is what they expect when gambling comes to town.

The planned city disturbance included 75 cars and some of the drivers posted signs in car windows saying "casino traffic" to help citizens make the connection.

However, another group of 150 people pro-gambling held a demonstration in support of casino. They said the casinos would bring new jobs and lots of needed revenue.

According to pro-gambling activists, the introduced casino would bring much improvements in the city infrastructure.
