Illegal parking by charter bus and limo

Dean Street at Carlton Avenue and Dean Street at Temple of Restoration
November 15, 2012 - 9:30pm

A charter bus from New Jersey parked and idled for at least a half hour at the bus stop on Dean Street just east of Carlton Avenue.  This is a regular location for illegal parking by limos and buses waiting for patrons from Barclays Center.  The 311 complaint specifically addresses this bus in this location.

While I was on the phone with 311 a police vehicle passed by.  I waved it down and it stopped approximately 75 feet away.  An officer got out and inspected a car blocking a fire hydrant.  I stayed on the phone with the 311 specialist and went over to the officer.  He told me he would finish what he was doing and then come to give the bus a summons.  Instead, he got in his car and left.  I completed the call with 311 and then inspected the vehicle blocking the fire hydrant.  It was a private car associated with a placard from the Department of Corrections.  There was no summons.
As I walked toward the arena I found a limo parked and idling in front of the Church designated parking area immediately in front of the Temple of Restoration.  Two photos are attached.
