NY1 DOES STORY ON ILLEGALLY PARKED TRACTOR TRAILER TRUCKS UNDER JAMAICA’S LIRR OVERPASSES BUT WILL THE POWERS TO BE ADDRESS IT OR CONTINUE TO IGNORE IT

No wonder communities are the way they are with useless crooked elected officials, do nothing city agencies and asshole residents like the two in the below NY1 video who stated:

“It’s a big inconvenience, but I think it’s a necessary evil because where else are they going to park?” said Paul Giordano of South Ozone Park.

“The street is wide enough so that’s why I don’t think it’s an issue,” said another Jamaica resident, who works at an auto repair center down the street.

Hell, no, it is NOT a necessary evil Paul, they should be parking their trucks in proper legal places and as far as the other asshole who works for another unscrupulous auto place, it does not matter if the damn street is wide enough, there is a NO PARKING ANYTIME sign and it is a LIRR Tunnel. What assholes.

This is a major problem NOT being properly addressed (hell, it has NEVER been addressed) by the powers that be, just like all those thug auto body shops that have turned our streets into junkyard, while nothing is being done to address that issue by both elected officials and city agencies.

Think this would happen in Forest Hills in Katz’s neighborhood, FUCK NO. But it is fine to treat this community continually like SHIT.

Queens Man Says Illegally Parked Tractor-Trailers Under LIRR Bridges Pose Safety Risk

LIRR Tunnel with trucks

Jamaica resident Joe Moretti says tractor-trailer drivers are committing parking violations in his neighborhood, and the city is not doing enough to stop them. NY1’s Tanya Klitch filed this report.

Joe Moretti says large trucks illegally park under Long Island Railroad bridges along 93rd Avenue for days at a time, bringing a “wide load” of danger to the neighborhood.

“It makes it difficult sometimes for busses to get by, other cars,” said Moretti. “Trucks shouldn’t be parking there at all; there are definitely ‘No Parking’ signs.”

Moretti documents parking violations on his blog “Clean Up Jamaica Queens Now.” He says he’s also worried these trucks pose a potential security risk.

“Especially after 9/11 to have a huge tractor trailer truck with containers parking under the Long Island Railroad in my neighborhood, there’s a problem,” he said.

Adding to his frustration, he says last month he had to file a complaint twice to 311 before the NYPD wrote a report.

“But why I had to do two complaints to get this done, really ticked me off,” said Moretti.

Moretti says the trucks don’t only crowd the streets, making it tough for drivers, but they also create obstacles for pedestrians and cyclists.

“Not to mention the horrible smell from some of these trucks which are waste trucks that just sit there,” said Moretti. “The smell could be unbearable at times.”

Some residents, though, say sharing the road with trucks is just something that comes with living in an area with residential and commercial roots.

“It’s a big inconvenience, but I think it’s a necessary evil because where else are they going to park?” said Paul Giordano of South Ozone Park.

“The street is wide enough so that’s why I don’t think it’s an issue,” said another Jamaica resident, who works at an auto repair center down the street.

But Moretti says this dispute is not water under the bridge. He told NY1 last Thursday that local businesses and auto shops continue to leave trucks, including one on Merrick Blvd and Archer Avenue, under the bridges, often throughout the weekends.

NY1 returned to the site nearly a week later and found the same truck, parked along with other heavy vehicles.

The NYPD tells NY1 they plan to launch an initiative this week to begin issuing summonses and address his concerns.

For Moretti, it looks like there could be light at the end of the tunnel.

  1. The NYPD tells NY1 they plan to launch an initiative this week to begin issuing summonses and address his concerns.

    For Moretti, it looks like there could be light at the end of the tunnel.

    “Light at the end of the tunnel”? How ’bout light above the tunnel when the terrorist bomb blasts the LIRR bridge skyward?

    AND the cops are going to just issue summonses? Not TOW these damn behemoths OUT of the tunnel?

    BTW nice work Joe getting the media coverage. (Those 2 quoted guys are indeed assholes.)

  2. The second guy interviewed is why these trucks continue to park in our residential neighborhoods, these people are ablivous to the laws and rules of the roads. If everyone in the neighborhood got together and filed complaint after complaint every day then something would be done, like in my neighborhood theirs only 2 of us who file the complaints me and my neighbor that’s it every one else turns the blind eye,

  3. You would think 15 years after 9/11 and being reminded incessantly that our city is the #1 terrorist target in the world that they would tow those rigs out of there.

    It’s painfully and distressingly obvious that 311 is a joke now (well there’s a new rap song).

    I like to further add that those two mooks interviewed at the end just proves how wilfully ignorant, cynical and lazy they are.

    And what is the deal with the smashed windshield?
