Danny Rosado’s business is an unusual one — he moves people’s cars back and forth on the one-block Cheever Place in Cobble Hill to conform with alternate-side parking regulations. While some of his clients are local residents, many are teachers at nearby P.S. 29, according to The New York Times.

At times, he double-parks cars to make room for street sweepers, but when the no-parking rule ends at 11 a.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays, he moves them right back, the Times reported.

“While double-parking is officially not legal, most police officers tend to let it slide on alternate-side days,” the Times said.

Rosado inherited the business from his father, who started it in 1992. He no longer lives in the neighborhood, but he commutes to Cobble Hill from Midwood twice a week, on alternate-side days. Jeanie Flewell, a kindergarten teacher at P.S. 29, told the Times, “We’re teachers—there’s no way we could do it. How are you going to move your car when you’ve got a bunch of kids?”
