We have recently experienced an increase in illegal parking within our neighborhood. The most common infraction is illegally blocking the sidewalk. (City of Houston, APK-13 Blocking or parking on sidewalk- $40) And, many cars are parking in City of Houston “no parking” zones, out of the street, but still in the public right-of-way. There have been increased patrols by Parking Management. If you have been parking illegally, now would be a good time to find a legal place to park in your driveway or on the public street. Remember, don’t block the sidewalk. If your neighbor parks illegally, send them to this post as a gentle reminder. The reminder here will be better than any citation. Hopefully they will thank you for it!
