ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - One neighborhood near Gibson are woken up every night by semi-trucks driving down the street and they say pleas to the city haven't resulted in any solutions.
Most residents on the street moved to the Victory Hills neighborhood before a trucking company moved in a few years ago.
Since then, many say they haven't had an uninterrupted night of sleep.
"Being woken up in the middle of the night, it's very disruptive," said resident Divina LeRose-Ortiz. "The next day we're walking zombies."
"It wakes me up out of bed," said resident John Barnes. "[It's] pretty much every night. There are a couple nights that they don't necessarily wake me up if I have a headset on or something. But this morning they woke me up at 2:50."
Neighbors say the culprits are trucks from Segovia Distribution.
The company is located on Columbia off of Gibson.
But the city designed it so the trucks can't get there from Gibson, it's blocked off. So instead, drivers have to drive up Girard and onto the residential street of Vail to get to their location.
The produce distribution company doesn't deny the 3 a.m. drive-bys.
"That's one of the reasons we come in early because restaurants depend on us to deliver fresh, early," said manager Eddie Munoz.
The company has grown since it first moved into the neighborhood in 2009, from four large trucks, to 14 plus two 18-wheelers.
"I do feel bad in a way, but on the second hand, we're not doing anything wrong. We're making an honest living," he said.
The city says its tried to limit the impacts by allowing the trucks to only drive on a small part of Vail.
"You have a residential area stopping with no buffer to an industrial area. That's the way it was zoned back in the day," said Michael Riordan, director of Municipal Development for the city of Albuquerque. "I think we've done as much as we can to limit the impacts of those two movements next to each other. But that's the reality of buying a home next to an industrial area is that you have that kind of traffic."
Neighbors might have some relief, anyway: Segovia says business is doing so well, they might be moving to a bigger location later this year.
