Partial crackdown on Carlton Avenue parking, but construction worker's car apparently gets a pass

Atlantic Yards Report

Remember how some construction workers have apparently snagged free parking on Carlton Avenue just north of Atlantic Avenue?

Well, according to video posted on Atlantic Yards Watch, police are ticketing cars parked illegally along that block, but... they gave a pass to a vehicle where a construction vest was visible, indicating the driver's work.

Without an all-day cam, we can't be sure what happened--did the driver somehow luckily stop back at his vehicle when cops were coming through? But the evidence raises questions about selective enforcement.
