Parents in Parkchester say trucks from industrial area are a safety concern

Parkchester parents and teachers from P.S. 194 say they are fed up with the trucks in the industrial area.

Many parents say when trucks from Bestway Distributing double and triple park on Waterbury Avenue it is a safety hazard for the kids. Parents and teachers say they have gone to the local community board for help. The community board says it is asking the department of transportation to strictly enforce all parking regulations in the area.

The owner of Bestway Distributing says the trucks are loaded first thing in the morning before school starts. He adds that the trucks do not return until after school is out.
