Illegal parking

 From time to time, I receive a call from a frustrated resident who is reporting that someone has parked on the street and is blocking their driveway.

This happens near churches, schools or wherever several people are gathered in residential neighborhoods. Most often the offender didn't realize that their vehicle was blocking a driveway and was preventing the owner from exiting or entering their property.

Please do yourself a favor and pay close attention to where you park. You don't want to block a fire hydrant, driveway or leave your vehicle partially in a crosswalk.

Imagine how embarrassing it would be to get called out of church to move your vehicle, or how disappointed you would be to leave a wedding only to find a ticket on your windshield.

Worse yet, it would be very inconvenient if you left the function you were attending only to learn that your vehicle had been towed.

You will have nothing to worry about if you always double check your parking before leaving your vehicle.
