BROOKLYN - Residents who live near the Atlantic Yards construction site say they're fed up with cars parking illegally in the area.

They say construction workers blatantly ignore signs that forbid stopping, standing or parking along Dean Street. Parking rules, they say, are rarely enforced there.

Some cars in the area have police placards visible in their windshields. Local residents, however, point to a recent study by a transportation group that found many placards in the construction zone to be fraudulent.

Concerned neighbors have launched a website to document parking violations and other troubles they say the construction project is causing.Residents, local leaders to hold meeting on Atlantic Yards project
