Here is a survey of illegal parking and idling April 20th between 9:15 and 10:15 PM during the Nets/Bulls play-off game. The geographic location included areas with regular illegal parking to the north and east of Barclays Center. The idling reported below wasn't timed, but in all cases the drivers looked settled in, (i.e.: sleeping or reading).
I did not call 311 for any of the violations below.
Dean Street between Carlton and Vanderbilt
A pedestrian was struck by what appeared to be a F-150 type truck on 5th Avenue near Flatbush. I arrived at the scene just after the incident, but the driver fled the scene leaving behind the grill of the truck, as well as the license plate. This section of Flatbush has been particularly dangerous in recent weeks during morning hours, as cars on Flatbush block the intersections making it dangerous to cross. Because of the grid lock, drivers take aggressive action to make light and turn in opposite lanes.

When I saw a truck leave the Barclays loading dock and drive up Dean St., I went to ask the security guards at the dock why. The response from the two security guards was that no one had ever told them that there were any restrictions on which streets the trucks should use. Also their supervisor confirmed that they had never been given such information. So much for Ashley Cotton's detailed presentation in September regarding truck routes!
Can these types of incidents be reported to 311? I expect several more violations, if they really are violations, after the breakdown of the circus.
