A tow truck is towed away during an illegal parking crackdown conducted by the 104th Precinct in Maspeth on Feb. 2-3.

If you’re parking your car in Maspeth overnight, you’d better follow the rules.

That’s the message the 104th Precinct delivered in seizing 11 illegally parked vehicles and three tow trucks while issuing 15 summonses during a crackdown in the neighborhood on Wednesday night, Feb. 2, into early the next morning.

 

Law enforcement sources said the 104th Precinct’s Traffic Team conducted the towing operation after receiving numerous community complaints about illegally parked vehicles, some of which lacked proper licenses and registration, during overnight hours.

“This is a example of how the community and police working together can solve various issues,” said Detective Thomas Bell of the 104th Precinct Community Affairs Unit.

Police said that most of the vehicles were towed away from the vicinity of Flushing Avenue and 60th Street. Auto repair shops in the area had been previously warned to keep vehicles that are being serviced at the locations off the street while their businesses are closed.
