Illegal Billboard Topples Onto Brooklyn-Queens Expressway

Last Friday, January 13th, a fifty ton illegal New York Lottery billboard toppled over onto the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway. The billboard violated zoning regulations that prohibit billboards within 200 feet of a highway. The toppled billboard closed two lanes of westbound traffic on the BQE, left a hole in a body shop, severed a gas line and damaged a car.
