2012-08-14 Barclays arena 18 wheel tractor trailer drives &parks on sidewalk says, “I've been here all f-ing day & I can't move!”
How much more unsafe can it get for the community when a Barclays arena vendor drives & parks their 18 wheel tractor trailer on public sidewalk & then says, “I've been here all f-ing day I wait here & I can't move? The security guard told me to park here! I have a right to park here!” really?
Pictures show a family comes dangerously close and was unaware that the truck was going to move: when they notice it was being videotaped they supplied their contact information & another resident almost crushed by the truck backing up & I have his information also. How much more dangerous can it get just because of the rush to get the arena complete!
Note in video: other Barclays arena vendors illegality idling & parking in ‘Red No Standing’ zones
