As part of a plan, limos for celebrities at the VMAs are sent down Dean Street in the reverse direction. They line up on the both sides of Dean Street between 6th and Carlton Avenues under people's homes, (see attached photos)
To reach Dean they travel down Carlton Avenue:

Due to time constraints, these photos could not be posted last night. Most were taken at 8:45PM and some at 11PM. No Traffic Enforcement Agents were seen during the entire evening and it is assumed that there were none assigned to patrol, according to FCR. Regular Police Officers were stationed on corners such as Flatbush and Bergen but not engaging with illegal parkers. Two officer patrols in the area were encountered at around 9PM and did respond positively when the offending vehicles in the immediate area were pointed out, though the action taken was not noted.
Within a short walk of my home I found and reported to 311 approximately 16 illegally parked limousines, during a period of about 20 minutes.
This incident is over. No 311 complaint was filed. This is to archive the incident.
The driver said he came out of the loading dock and was told to get out of the way immediately. He was forced to come down Dean Street and unload his container onto the street in a bus stop. He was busy covering the container when I saw him. His truck was idling.
