“The ringing of these bells over and over and over and over again is really very annoying,” City Councilman Daniel Dromm said of the aggressive ice cream trucks in Jackson Heights. “They’re ringing the bells with that jingle at later times in the evening, like close to 11 o’clock at night.”

He told WCBS 880 reporter Jim Smith it’s not just the music. He said trucks are parking on a play street usually off limits to vehicles, idling for hours next to a local park and pumping fumes into the air.
“Have some common courtesy and to respect the people who live in this neighborhood,” he said.
Dromm said he plans to take complaints from residents directly to the commanding officer of the 115th Precinct.MORE NEWS: Body Cam Video Shows Aftermath Of Argument Between Gabby Petito, Fiancé Weeks Before Her Last Call To Family
