Downtown Brooklyn is still the capital of parking abuse by government employees, despite widespread exposure of the issue. In addition to the Adams Street bike lane, which we've been harping about for some time, other problem spots include Gold Street off Myrtle Avenue where a check by The Daily News last week found 29 cars of firefighters illegally parked, six of them on the sidewalk and Jay Street, where cops and firefighters were parked at expired meters with impunity. "They park in front of hydrants, crosswalks and bus stops," said Michael Burke of the Downtown Brooklyn Partnership, which has been advocating parking reform in the area. "It's a safety issue," he said. "It adds to a sense of lawless in the community."
