Default residential parking laws ?

I am getting mixed feedback on wether a person that lives accross from me that works for the utility company can park his box truck on the street.
It's an eyesore and it is a pain in the a_ _ to get my boat in and out of my garage.

Are his curbside tires within 12" of the curb? Is his truck parked in the same direction as other cars or trucks in the area? Do you live in an area with a homeowners Association or the like that have rules as to who and what type of vehicle can park on the street?

It is a public street meaning anyone can park there.

Many townships and municipalities do not allow overnight parking of commercial cars. Id make a quick call to the local zoning or politely ask the guy if there is a way he can keep it in the driveway vs on the street

Agreed. While he cannot block your entrance our egress to your property his truck making things hard on you is probably not actionable.

Have you asked the guy I'd he would mind leaving you some room? He may apologize and change his parking area from then on. If not, check local zoning laws about commercial trucks parking overnight, and start calling the place he works. them his boss will tell him to park elsewhere!

A lot of insurance co will not pay if they are broken into while in driveway that is why they park them on the street (at least thats what Ive been told by members of my subdivision that park theirs on the street).

If it's in your swing area, explain the problem to him.

I've been thru housing areas where you can hardly drive down the street because of all the cars on both sides - and almost every house has an empty driveway, and if the garage doors are up, no cars inside. I don't get it...

Does the said offender have room in his driveway to park the vehicle?

I sometimes park in the street so the kids can play basketball... My neighborhood is pretty sparse though.

If you live in the City of Columbus:

2151.20 - Limitations on truck, bus and trailer parking.

(a)
No owner or driver of a truck, bus, tractor, trailer, semitrailer or house vehicle shall park or stand such vehicle on any street for a period longer than one (1) hour. However, this section shall not apply to trucks or trailers used for conveying the necessary tools and materials to premises where labor, using such tools and materials, is to be performed during the actual time of parking such trucks or trailers, nor to motor trucks or buses conveying passengers to any public meeting, assembly, church, convention or entertainment during the actual session of any such public meeting, assembly, church, convention or entertainment, nor to the actual time during which a motor truck, motor truck tractor, trailer or semitrailer is being loaded or unloaded or used to deliver or hoist property or merchandise for completion of delivery.
(b)
A violation of this section constitutes the commission of a parking infraction to be handled pursuant to and governed by the provisions of Chapter 2150


Best bet is to call 311 and report it to the traffic division. If they were parking on private property, 311 and report to Code Enforcement.
