Woman says drivers publicly urinate near her home weekly

T RADIAL HIGHWAY, CAMILA: ALEXANDRA, THE HOMEOWNER TELLS ME SHE’S TRIED TO GET HER COMPLAINTS ANSWERED FOR YEARS. HER SECURITY CAMERAS, CAPTURING PEOPLE PUBLICLY URINATING IN THIS ALLEY AND THE ONE ACROSS THE STREET JUST FEET FROM HER HOME. >> THERE ARE RESTROOMS ALL AROUND HERE. WE’RE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE CITY. CAMILA: BUT FOR SOME REASON, THIS BENSON AREA WOMAN SAYS PEOPLE ARE USING THIS ALLEY BY HER HOME AS A RESTROOM INSTEAD. >> ON AN AVERAGE WEEK, PROBABLY ABOUT SEVEN. CAMILA: THE WOMAN, WHO DOESN’T WANT TO BE IDENTIFIED, LIVES NEAR 49TH AND NORTHWEST RADIAL NEXT TO A CAR WASH WHERE SHE SAYS DRIVERS FREQUENTLY RELIEVE THEMSELVES OUTSIDE. >> THEY CHOOSE TO URINATE BEHIND THE BUILDING, WHICH IS ABOUT FOUR TO FIVE FEET AWAY FROM MY WINDOWS IN MY DINING ROOM. CAMILA: HER SURVEILLANCE CAMERAS ROLLING WEDNESDAY MORNING AS THIS SCHOOL BUS DRIVER PARKS HIS BUS AND RUNS OVER TO THE SIDE OF THE CAR WASH. JUST 30 MINUTES EARLIER, ANOTHER BUS DRIVER TAKES A PIT STOP IN THE ALLEY ACROSS THE STREET. >> COMPLETELY SHOCKED. CAMILA: BUT BATHROOM BREAKS ARE JUST THE BEGINNING OF THE PROBLEMS SHE SAYS SHE’S SEEN. DRUGS, VANDALISM AND EVEN ASSAULTS. >> HE THREW HIM TO THE CEMENT GROUND. CAMILA: ALL CAUGHT ON CAMERA. REPORTS TO POLICE AND CALLS TO THE CAR WASH OWNERS, SHE SAYS, ARE LARGELY IGNORED. >> IT FEELS LIKE THEY’RE DROPPING THE BALL, AS IF THIS IS SOMETHING THAT’S BENEATH THEM TO TAKE CARE OF. CAMILA: SHE HOPES SOMEBODY WILL STEP UP FOR THE SAKE OF THE NEIGHBORHOOD. >> YOU CAN’T GET A GOOD NIGHT’S SLEEP BECAUSE YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT’S GOING TO HAPPEN. CAMILA: I DID REACH OUT TO ONE OF THE CAR WASH OWNERS. HE TOLD ME OVER THE PHONE THAT HE’S DOING EVERYTHING HE CAN TO REDUCE PROBLEMS, INCLUDING PERSONALLY MEETING WITH MEMBERS OF THE POLICE DEPARTMENT. REPORTING LIVE NEAR BENSON,
