Note: Continuous backup beeping warning before opening of yards for after-hours work permit.

06:48 dump truck finally parks in official staging area; the question? They passed this spot earlier in the video segment, why didn’t they park there in the first place or why were they allowed to proceed just to return?

Atlantic Ave in this area is a “No Jake brake zone”
