Double-parked school buses along West Farms Road irk residents

Posted: Updated:

Residents living along West Farms Road say they're fed up with school buses double-parking on their block.

Residents say it creates a hazard for both drivers and pedestrians. Darryl Preston says the roadway only has room for one lane of traffic in each direction.

"The school buses are taking over the neighborhood," said Preston.

News 12 didn't see any buses double-parked on the block. However, Preston showed News 12 photos of when he believed it was at its worst.

A disabled resident in the area says the situation often makes it difficult for her to go about her day.

They both say the issue has been going on for years despite their calls to 311. News 12 is still waiting to hear from the city Department of Education regarding the double-parked buses.
