New York City continues to crack down on parked trucks as multiple agencies joined forces to ticket and tow commercial vehicles this week.
On Wednesday, the New York Police Department’s (NYPD) 45th and 47th Precinct joined forces with NYC Sanitation and MTA for a crack down on illegally parked trucks in the Bronx.
The truck parking enforcement operation occurred following complaints from residents, who reportedly claimed that the trucks had been parked in their neighborhoods for “a long time.”
“We’ve heard your concerns and our officers are out there working tirelessly to a resolve! These violations will not go unnoticed or unanswered,” NYPD said.

In August 2022, NYC Mayor Eric Adams partnered with the NYPD for operation “Heavy Duty Enforcement,” an overnight enforcement action against illegally parked commercial vehicles in neighborhoods of southern Queens. This enforcement effort was also a response to community complaints about parked trucks.
For far too long, large commercial vehicles have been parking illegally in this neighborhood in Queens and across the city.
Operation “Heavy Duty Enforcement” began last Monday.
