Whitestone truck problem continues
As you can see, the problems on 5th avenue continue. Between the onslaught of cars, speeding cars, cars that blow through the stop sign on the corner of 147th street, cars that speed around a slower moving car that is actually following the speed limit, cars that speed around you onto oncoming traffic if you dare stop at the stop sign.
Then you have this, trucks and tractor trailers, all day every day. According to Department of Transportation Commissioner Maura McCarthy, this is a mere inconvenience. In other words if SHE doesn't consider it a danger than the residents need to love with it? Or it isn't a quality of life issue that negatively affects the residents/taxpayers on the block?
How much longer do we have to wait?
What are they waiting for?
Last year it was a fire hydrant and a diesel spill that requires DEP as well as other agencies to clean it up. Do we have to wait for a tragedy ?
What's the quota commissioner?
