THE BRONX - Throggs Neck residents have long been asking for more parking spots in the neighborhood, and recently they got their wish, but there are now new concerns.

The Department of Transportation conducted a study and approved the return of angled parking on one side of Balcom Avenue, which had previously been eliminated due to zoning laws.

Although many were happy to get additional parking spots, they say they're concerned that the dividing line painted on Balcom Avenue cuts into the other side of the street. Neighbors say many motorists simply ignore the yellow line.

"They could have moved the line probably about a foot over and you could have room to park on both sides," Dennis Zervos says.
