X-Rated Parking

Illustrated below are nine parking choices which may earn you a citation:

Blocking the sidewalk: the sidewalk is not part of your driveway.


Blocking a driveway: it doesn’t matter if it’s your own driveway.


Less than 15 feet from hydrant: even if there is no red curb.


Not parallel to curb: unless the zone is marked with lines


On front lawn: Sure, it’s private property, but it’s still illegal.


Wrong side of street: unless it’s a one-way street.


Street cleaning restriction: even after the sweeper has passed.


Handicap space: if you are not handicapped…shame on you!


Standing in red zone: it doesn’t matter if you are inside your vehicle with the engine running—red zone prohibits stopping, standing or parking.
