People in NYC do not respect the concept of an “Unbroken Double Yellow Line” they make “U” turns anywhere they want. The Police don’t make any attempt to enforce these Common Sense Regulations.

Another example of NYPD malfeasance. The majority of NY Police Officers do not even live in our city. Can we really expect them to care our quality of life?
