Baltimore traffic chief resigns after few months on the job

BALTIMORE (AP) — Baltimore’s traffic chief resigned from his position less than five months after being on the job.

Bob Snyder, who came out of retirement to take the role on Dec. 30, left the job on Thursday, the Baltimore Sun reported.

It’s the second time Snyder, who previously served as a state assistant traffic chief for more than three decades, has resigned from Baltimore’s chief traffic division job just months after assuming the role. According to his Linkedin page, he was previously in the role for about four months before his departure on February 2015.


German Vigil, a spokesman for the city’s transportation department, said Snyder’s departure was a “personnel matter,” and declined to comment further on the resignation.

Synder did not respond to the Baltimore Sun’s request for comment on the story. He is being replaced by Charles Baker, the head of the city’s tow yard and previous interim traffic chief, said Vigil.
