If there's no (or belated) enforcement of trucking rules, why not try... civil disobedience?

I didn't get a response yesterday from Empire State Development to my 8/25/11 query about apparent violations of trucking rules at the Atlantic Yards site, as documented by Atlantic Yards Watch.

One out-of-town blog reader had an idea: if trucks continue to travel up residential Clermont Avenue, why don't neighborhood residents join up to block the street? After all, if they get arrested, they can point to selective enforcement of rules and regulations.

Well, there won't be any trucks today, because of hurricane concerns, but we'll see if anybody takes up the idea.
