Traffic around Yankee Stadium frustrating residents

Residents who live around Yankee Stadium say they are frustrated by the traffic and lack of parking spots during baseball games.

Residents say when the Yankees are playing, most of the streets around the neighborhood are blocked causing traffic jams. Some say security teams even block access to streets many live on making it hard for them to get home.

Many say the barricades don't work as fans simply go through them to find a parking spot.
