New Yorkers are getting fed up with clubgoers who make hanky panky inside of parked cars. Residents between Seventh and Eighth Avenues around West 30th Street say randy partiers are having sex in cars, leaving condoms on the street, honking car horns at all hours ... you get the idea. So the neighbors have convinced a community board to back a request for a no-parking area on weekend nights, the New York Post reports.

The board can't enforce the ban, but has petitioned city leaders to take action. One club on the strip is already in hot water after the State Liquor Authority denied its request to renew its liquor license. Facing possible closure, The Parlour owner Rocco Sergio has promised to resolve problems with the community, saying, “I had no idea that anything like that was going on." Says one longtime resident: “Every night when they close, there is controlled riot." (More New York City stories.)
