If you live in Island Park, Oceanside, Long Beach, Rockville Centre, and there is an emergency or a snow storm your in trouble. There is only one lane out of these towns and they have parking on them. Snow plows can't do there job, so the roads are plowed like crap. We need no parking on any emergency route and those roads clean so you can lick them.
