YES, that can be a future headline, when issues such as illegal placement of huge tractor trailers, tractor trailers containers and several bags of garbage and unknown substances are ALLOWED to be placed in Jamaica’s LIRR Tunnels (170th, 168 and 165) or anywhere else in this community (and that goes for the hundreds of abandoned vehicles dumped in this community) under the watch eyes of the powers that be and nothing is done. Actually NO VEHICLES of any kind should be able to park in a LIRR Tunnel, that is just common sense. And since we all have in our head, like the constant annoying Mister Softee jingle:
NEW YORKERS KEEP NEW YORK SAFE
Whenever you ride an MTA bus, subway or
railroad, be on the lookout for:
- unattended packages
- suspicious behavior
- people in bulky or inappropriate clothing
- exposed wiring or other irregularities
- anyone tampering with surveillance cameras or entering unauthorized areas
If you see something, say something.
As soon as you notice any potential danger, tell a cop or MTA employee,
or call 888-NYC-SAFE (888-692-7233).
But then when I reported a tractor trailer parked illegally inside the 170 St LIRR Tunnel yesterday (6.24.16) at 11:00AM (last weekend I reported several in the 168 & 165 LIRR tunnels that had been sitting for the entire weekend, while NYPD just casually drove by) and you get this message from your 311 complaint:
Service Request #: C1-1-1269576281
Date Submitted: 06/24/16 4:37:11 PM
Request Type: Derelict Vehicle
Details: With License Plate
Your Service Request was closed.The Police Department responded to the complaint and determined that police action was not necessary
And then you check the location again at 4:00PM and see even more, well something stinks very badly. Something is VERY WRONG in Southeast Queens and this is not an isolated incident, this is a constant ongoing problem that is not being properly addressed. I am sure the FBI/homeland security will be very interested in this.
Maybe the new motto suggested by a reader should be “If you see something suspicious, say something and NOW go fuck yourself.
Talk about a story that the Media SHOULD BE COVERING. And elected officials, THIS SHOULD BE PRIORITY.
The next sound you here may be KABOOM!
