((christianne klein)) >> our 8 news now good day team sat down with sherrif joe lombardo to see what's being done about it in our morning cup of joe. ((brian loftus)) comes in from our viewer mac, who wonders.. why isn't the law enforced concerning the stripped off areas in parking lots where motorcycles park illegally,
around handicap parking? and that is from mac sheriff joe lombardo: well they are enforced. there's 2 reasons for private parking lots we can issue citations. that's handicap and fire zones. if you're in violation of either one of those. we have volunteers who issue those citations. i'd be comfortable saying we have around 600 citations/year. it is, granted there's a lot of parking lots and it's labor intensive, but we do issue citations on a constant basis associated with those crimes. 600 citations/year, it is enforced. ((kirsten joyce)) second question is from tris bowman. street racing with small cars that have very loud mufflers race around an empty warehouse parking lot behind our neighborhood very late at night/early morning when the warehouses are closed. motorcycles are now using the parking lot. is there a contact with metro that we could call when it's taking place to put a stop to it? sheriff joe lombardo:
describing. depending on where it's occurring there's a substation that's responsible for that geography. if you go to our website, it'll give you that geography and the contact numbers you can call. or you can just call 311 and they'll give you direction. we receive those type of calls on a constant basis and then we direct on a weekly basis to officers to go out and make an adjustment or enforcement. ((kirsten joyce)) okay, so call 311 but then it might be a bitf respond, but you will respond, that's good. sheriff joe lombardo: or go to the website and find out the individual substation phone number and call there and they can take the complaint too. ((brian loftus)) the location, time it's happening and maybe they'll resolve it.
why do metro helicopters fly so low over neighborhoods on the northeast side of town, in comparison to the rest of the city? sheriff joe lombardo: that's probably not accurate. northeast is the corridor where the canyon tour operators come through, so there's 200 of those that come through a day. it might be perceived as a metro helicopter, but they are able to fly between 400-600 feet. that's a normal altitude patrol helicopters run, the tour runners fly at a higher altitude, they're required to. law enforcement is l lower. but they go the same altitude throughout the valley, it's not the ne in particular but there's alot more traffic associated with helicopters in that area, so it might be a perception.
