May I park on the sidewalk?
Parking on or across a sidewalk is prohibited, even if you are parked in your own private driveway. Parking in the area between the sidewalk and the curb line is also prohibited. We enforce this ordinance because we don’t want our pedestrians to have to walk into the street to walk around vehicles that are blocking the sidewalk. It is of special concern when a parent pushing a baby stroller or a person in a wheelchair has to enter into the roadway to avoid a vehicle blocking the sidewalk. For this reason, we enforce this ordinance.
