Police don't want to tow abandoned car
I made numerous 311 complaints and emailed Sergeant Turner at the 107 precinct who said she would take care of it. The car is still there and they have still not done anything ticket or tow.
I'm attaching pictures and below are my e-mails back and forth with my original and the sergeant's reply and my reply a few days later. It is located on Gravett Road between 149 Street and Main Street. Maybe your posting will get them to do something and not let NYC become the dumping ground for cars like the 70's.
Dear Sergeant Turner,
The green Chrysler is still on the block with the Maryland plate of 7AZE49 which is expired for 9 YEARS expired August 2007.
As usual I am not surprised that last week again it was not given any ticket for the alternate side parking regulations or its expired plate. I still don't understand this as I just paid well over $100 to register my vehicle in order to not get a ticket and park legally. I guess I wasted my money.
If you take a drive by it down Gravett road between 149 street and main street you will see the Chrysler still at location with a paper on the dashboard saying something to the effect that the owner is a poor student.
As you know parking is difficult enough with an elementary school, high school, college and multiple apartment buildings.
I guess I will be continue seeing this car untouched and unmoved forever taking up a valuable parking space never to have up to date registration, towed, or ticketed.
I will take care of it. My guys will chalk the tires this afternoon. If the vehicle is still at the location after three days it will be towed. Thank you for your concern!
Enjoy the rest of your day!
Dear Sergeant Turner,
I am writing in regards to an abandoned vehicle opposite 144-42 Gravett road on the right side of the street right before the Paul Klapper school. As you know parking is scarce around queens college and Townsend Harris.
I have been trying to get this vehicle removed for quite some time. It is a green Chrysler Sebring convertible with a Maryland plate of 7AZE49.
This car has been parked in the same space for over 3 months. It never moves and the plate expired august 2007.
When alternate side comes a man removes the license plate then puts it back on. I am attaching pictures of the car on an alternate side day without the plate and one with the expired plate and of leafs, debris, and garbage piling up on the right side due to sanitation having to clean around the car.
I made numerous complaints to 311 with no avail. The responses are there is nothing wrong or the officers fixed the issue. This is untrue as officers never ticket or tow this vehicle.
Additionally I looked up in the city website and this vehicle owes $165 in unpaid parking tickets to NYC. All tickets for parking at this location dating back to 2014 hence the reason he removes the plates on alternate side dates.
My daily 311 complaints are 2/25/2016 #1-1-1217658091,1-1-1218812261, 2/26/2016# 1-1-1218150801, 2/27/2016 #1-1-1218643671, 2/28/2016 #1-1-1218812261 #1-1-1218956391, 2/29/2016 1-1-1219229021.
I guess the officers that continually brush this off are saying we can leave a car in the same spot on a city street without current registration for months on end and can remove plates to not get tickets.
If you drive by this car is still there 24/7 with the expired plates never moves and has expired registration.
Please have this car towed for the expired plates in violation of NYC traffic rule 4-08 (j)(1) and for parking over 7 days violating NYC traffic rule 4-08 (m) (9) or the out standing tickets.
I am sorry I have to email you but NONE of your officers are not doing their job. I did send the same pictures and message to your commanding officer on twitter as well.
