I noticed recently that nearby residents were complaining on EveryBlock SF about getting parking tickets in their own driveways.
The problem always seems to be the car sticking out a bit, and sometimes the parker is way over the line, but this used to happened to me on San Jose Avenue and I felt that at times it was aggressive ticketing. (Sometimes not.)
On Monday, walking north on Bartlett, I noticed the SUV above had a $105 ticket. It didn’t really seem that out of line, which is to say that a wheelchair or other kind of scooter could easily get by without having to go out into the street.
Has anyone else noticed an increase in tickets on cars in driveways? If so, send in photos of deserved and undeserved tickets!
Update Chris O’Leary, a reader with a sharp eye, points out that the ticket in the photograph is for not having plates, but the notice above it suggests that it’s for illegal parking in a driveway. So is it illegal parking in a driveway because it has no plates? We’re checking. Yep. It is illegal. The front plate is missing. And I suppose the notice about the driveway is a warning of sorts.
Well, send any photos at all about getting ticketed in your driveway.
