After 7 pm on Friday, police in Pittsburgh closed part of the inbound lane on East Carson Street. The tow truck carried away a car parked on that side of the road in violation of a pilot program launched this week by the Public Security Bureau. Increased traffic and violence in the area. “The city is just trying to control the mayhem that fell here last month or so,” said Daniel Maxwiggen. “People seem to be more frustrated. It’s not easy to deal with and I’ll deal with it until 3am.” McSwiggen shared a safety concern with Action News 4 in Pittsburgh. He owns a Cambod-Ican near 17th Street. The pilot program will only allow outbound traffic on East Carson between 10th and 18th Avenues from 7pm to 4am, diverting traffic to Muriel Street or Sarah Street. “I think it’s going to be a nightmare,” said neighbor Judy Karrick.

He said they were trying to do their best. “We’re trying to make everyone’s life a little easier so that cops can get a better idea of ​​what’s going on,” he said. “The large number of people in a small area makes this a serious problem.”
