Problems with Jamaica body shop
I just recently came across your site. Thought I would try to get some help and the word out on this establishment. The exact address is 91-20 182nd St, Jamaica, NY 11423. I’m writing this on behalf of my elderly parents who live on this street. Ever since this ‘repair shop’ came into the neighborhood they have been parking the cars that they have been repairing on the entire streets. Numerous call have been place to 311 to fine them for illegally parking on alternate side days. But they remove the license plates every morning from all the cars so they can avoid being ticketed. They leave the damaged cars overnight on the streets taking away parking space from the residents that actually live on the block. And if you ask them to move their cars they threaten you with bully tactics. So much so that I have witnessed the enforcement agents just walk by the cars afraid they will confronted by them. As you can see from this picture from their Facebook page, anything below that parking sign is commercial use till 6pm. But they parks cars even before that sign and even around the block to the next street. I would just like them to be put on notice for their acts. And if you know of anyone I can call or anything I can do to stop them from abusing the parking situation please let me know. It was a quiet block till they moved in.
Thanks in advance.
There are SO MANY auto body shops that do this. They need their own enforcement agency.
Call your council member: Daneek Miller (718) 776-3700.
You can also have residents bombard their Facebook page. Ain't social media grand?
