Brooklyn, New York Roadblocks
Police setup a checkpoint to stop vehicles. Independence Ave is blocked and can’t be accessed.
Several times a week there is a “Safety Check” roadblock setup here. officers request ID, Insurance & Registration. They do a visual search of the inside of your vehicle from the outside. I have been stopped here 3 times in the last 2 weeks.
11/13/14 at 9:00pm and raining. 2 policewomen stopping cars near entrance to Brooklyn Battery Tunnel/BQE. They asked for license only, took it into unmarked car, and returned it, wet from the rain, after 2-3 minutes. I’m a 70 y/o white woman with my husband in the front seat. I was too intimidated to ask any questions. I have no idea how often this roadblock is done, nor why.
A large amount of people are stopped at different times of the afternoon and evening. Last night 9/16/14 they had one at about 9pm. Last week same thing. Stopping motorcycles and cars, even delivery guys. They block President southbound so you cant pass Nostrand to go to Rogers Ave. either.
