2012-02-21 LIRR Vanderbilt earth mover blocks Pacific St traffic - causes extremely dangerous reversing maneuver by traffic

Location: 
Mid block Pacific St bet Carlton Ave & 6th Ave
When: 
February 21, 2012 - 8:55am

LIRR Vanderbilt earth mover advances from official staging area between Vanderbilt & Carlton while NYC Sanitation truck is picking up on south side of Pacific St clearly the LIRR Vanderbilt earth mover cannot ‘fit’ to successfully pass but advances and blocks traffic. Traffic brings attention to congestion by honking.
00:46 driver frustrated by having to wait so long attempts an extremely dangerous reversing maneuver from mid-block back to Carlton but all access behind the driver is one way including Carlton & Pacific St from Carlton to Vanderbilt is a non-public street.
01:05 they abandon the extremely dangerous reversing maneuver when traffic approaches
