People living on the far east side are fed up with random people parking on their streets to take in the view, especially on July 4.

Stewart Avenue, for example, fills up with cars and families trying to watch fireworks.

People who live there say, many times, people want to shoot off their own illegal fireworks while they drink and party.

After many complaints, Clark County officials decided to launch a pilot program this year.

They put a bunch of "Road Closed" signs up, hoping people would see them and turn around.

13 Action News was out on Stewart Avenue and learned that wasn't the case. Dozens of cars disregarded the signs and drove right past. They parked up on the hill to watch the fireworks.

No one from the county was out there to enforce the signs. Residents hope there will be better enforcement next year.
