PARKING VIOLATIONS & TEXAS STATE LAWS If you have received an orange flyer on your windshield of your vehicle, here is why; the state law prohibits the following: • Blocking driveways • Parking too close to intersections • Parking too close to corners • Blocking fire hydrants • Parking in fire lanes BLOCKING SIDEWALKS If a vehicle is parked blocking a sidewalk, it becomes very difficult for pedestrians, bicycles, children, strollers and wheelchairs to pass safely. Blocking the sidewalk can result in forcing these people to enter into the street causing unsafe conditions. BLOCKING DRIVEWAYS When a vehicle is parked blocking a driveway, it creates an inconvenience for the homeowners attempting to leave, or enter his/her driveway. 48-HOUR PARKING No vehicle can be parked on any residential street for more than 48 consecutive hours. Parking too close to an Intersection or Crosswalk Vehicles may not be parked within 30 feet of a stop sign or within 20 feet of a crosswalk. BLOCKING A FIRE HYDRANT This is one of the most common violations is when a vehicle is parked blocking a fire hydrant, or fire lane. This can create problems for emergency vehicles and hinders their ability to do their job effectively. No vehicles may be parked within 15 feet of a fire hydrant. PARKING NEXT TO CURBS AND ONCOMING TRAFFIC Vehicles cannot be more than 18” away from the curb and must be parallel to curb – the vehicle cannot park with the front or rear of the vehicle pointing to the curb (cul-de- sacs). The vehicle must be parked in the same direction as the traffic flow.
