Enough is enough. For years, car dealerships and auto body shops along Northern Boulevard in Woodside and Long Island City have been parking vehicles on the sidewalks and now City Councilman Jimmy Van Bramer (D-Sunnyside), transportation advocates and residents are asking the 108th and 114th Precincts for assistance in increasing enforcement on illegal parking on streets and sidewalks from 62nd Street to Broadway.
“Forcing families, seniors and schoolchildren into danger is never acceptable and will not be tolerated in our communities,” Van Bramer said. “Our city’s dealerships and auto body shops have an obligation to obey our city and state laws. If they do not, they must be penalized to the fullest extent of the law. These bad corporate neighbors are neglecting the safety of our communities and putting lives in danger.”
