For the past year-and-a-half, exhaust fumes have blackened Talia Billig’s window and honking, slamming and customer’s conversations have forced her to sleep with three white noise devices, according to the report.

Billig has called the city reporting line repeatedly, but usually by the time police officers arrive — who enforce the DOT’s intercity bus rules which prohibit idling —  the stop is either empty or they find the bus is not idling, DNAinfo reported. For the full story, click here.
