The MTA says its signal maintenance workers have been skipping required safety checks and filing false reports.

The problem has been under investigation by the MTA inspector general since August.

The IG says subway managers failed to properly monitor the workers.

The problems with false signal inspections were the worst in Midtown and along the Seventh Avenue and Lexington Avenue lines.
