THE BRONX - Some Bronx residents say illegally parked tractor-trailers are adding to their parking woes.

Local leaders say big rig trucks are taking up parking spots overnight and could lead to accidents.

Officials say the area is the scene of a fatal accident two years ago, when a driver lost control of his car and struck a tractor-trailer.

Ken Kearns for Community Board 9 says the board is currently working with police to set up enforcement following numerous complaints.
