NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- Businesses in parts of Brooklyn and Queens are bracing for the start Monday of a pilot program that bans curbside deliveries during morning and evening rush hours.

Mayor Bill de Blasio’s administration said the new rules will ease congestion from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m., and from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m., along Flatbush Avenue and Roosevelt Avenue.

Business owners fear what will happen to them.

Speaking to the New York Post, Marko Lalic – co-owner of the Union Market at 342 Flatbush Ave. – said the new rule will “completely disrupt” the way his store operates.

The rush hour curbside delivery ban expands to parts of Midtown Manhattan on April 2.
