Illegal Parking on 6th avenue

Location: 
6th between Dean and Bergen
When: 
July 30, 2011 - 2:02pm

# cars parked perpendicularly on the precinct block; without permits; hanging over the white line into the street. Since 6th Avenue was made into a two-way corridor, there is no protection for bicycle riders on that block. I filed the report after I was snagged by the bumper of the Crown Victoria while riding my bicycle.

The Daily News reports the NYPD is now ticketing construction worker cars parked illegally

Erin Durkin in the Daily News has followed up on her article from earlier this month about illegal construction worker parking.  She reports the police have issued 69 summonses in the last two weeks in the blocks around the site.  She quotes a NYPD spokesman as saying the violations "run the gamut," of the type of violations this website has highlighted.

Regular visitors to Pacific Street or 6th Avenue will see a discernible difference with few cars parked on sidewalks or in violation of parking regulations.  Illegal construction worker parking has largely been cleared away from those areas.  Other areas such as inside the MPT zone on Atlantic Avenue continue to be used by construction workers.  Illegal city employee parking, especially related to the 78th Precinct, also continues.

As part of what will be an ongoing initiative Atlantic Yards Watch will post a review of existing construction worker parking strategies in a few weeks.
