Atlantic Yards dump truck used not a truck route Dean St – no flaggers assisting the dump truck or safely directing traffic gate 3; More ESDC's new process to crack down on errant truckers that isn't enforced or simply ignored, the truck should have trrned either right (S)  or left (N) on 6th Ave and not carried on Dean St.

A LAQUILA #32 (718) 252-0126 dump truck USDOT: 1824470 exits EB/right from the arena @ the Dean St & Flatbush gate 3 & traverses EB Dean St not an authorized truck route & continues past Carlton Ave.

The truck was traveling @ a speed that seem unwise considering that this is a residential area with a children’s playground with pragmatic illegal double parking violations that make all traffic dangerously intrude into the high traffic Dean St bike lane. Notice that the dump truck was dangerously jetting out almost totally blocking the bike lane with no Atlantic Yards/flaggers assisting the dump truck or safely directing traffic/bikers/pedestrians to avoid an accident @ 00:12 sec. @ 00:30 sec notice construction workers walking in the travel lane then moving into the right turn lane @ 6th Ave.
