Now and Then: Brooks Robinson Drive, Is This Better?

There are no vehicles parked Friday evening at Brooks Robinson Drive during the first week of a new regulation that prohibits overnight parking at the access road.

How's this for a change?

There are no vehicles parked along Brooks Robinson Drive this evening, according to Patch reader Jon Leven.

This is the first week that parking overnight there has been prohibited. Recently the length of time allowed has been decreased, from 48 hours, and then to 24 hours.

Here are two photos Leven took at the site at about 6 p.m. Sept. 7.

And compare them with photos from when the shoulders are crowded.

How do you feel about the new state of Brooks Robinson? Will you sleep better at night without the overnight guests? Tell us in the comments.

I really did nt mind the trucks. I mean, truckers are doing a valuable service to this country, and at night, they look for a safe place to park and sleep. I didn't mind that they found BRDrive to be a safe area. The issue was more that some were parking the for days and going elsewhere. I didn't mind if they stayed there overnight, but were gone by 7 am or so. Now they can't park at all.

Good points, George. Still, I wonder why the victors aren't commenting on this issue at Brooks Robinson Drive. It would be nice to know if they're pleased with the results.

"I wonder why the victors aren't commenting on this issue" Because those yentas have moved onto complaining about something else. Most likely something about dogs on their front lawns

Seems as though Baltimore and surrounding area's have it out for truckers now. See the article about preventing them from stopping along 83. How long will it be before a trucker, just doing his job to support his family, falls asleep at the wheel and kills somebody? Truckers are what keep this country running; do people not realize that just about everything in their homes was delivered on a truck, by a person?
