NEW YORK — The Metropolitan Transit Authority, or MTA, of New York doesn't want to talk about its $140 million radio communications system that is bogged down by so much interference that New York City transit police refuse to use it.

"We're not going to comment until the police tell us it's fixed," an MTA spokesperson said.
