According to an email from Councilman Greenfield, this problem has plagued that section of Bensonhurst/Mapleton for years, but has become worse in recent months as commercial vehicles have encroached into Midwood.
Residents submitted numerous complaints to Greenfield about air and noise pollution from idling engines, lack of visibility for drivers and pedestrians from parked trucks, suspicious individuals hanging out between the trucks and large amounts of trash left behind by the drivers.
Greenfield says he's been working with the DOT, Department of Environmental Protection and NYPD over the past few months, and has requested that new signage be posted that clearly prohibits overnight commercial parking.
