Count Cars Breaking the Law in Prospect Park!

Almost every time Doug Gordon
visits Prospect Park he sees vehicles entering illegally after it is
closed to cars at 7 pm. It made him mad, so he got out his video camera.

StreetFilms obtained the footage he took on June 20th near the 3rd Street/Prospect Park West entrance and truncated it into this enlightening bit. Count along as dozens of drivers break the law!

We think Doug is awesome and we whole-heartedly encourage more concerned citizens to act constructively to highlight what is going on in their community.
