October 15, 1995


There are cars parked in a driveway on my street that are not in working order, and it looks like a used-car lot. I called city hall and I also called the police, and they said they are not going to do anything about it. Why not?

The police can't do anything about the vehicles if they are parked on an approved surface and not in violation of any city parking ordinance, said Sgt. Rick Nickell of the police department. If the vehicles are in such condition that they constitute some type of blight, they might be in violation of the city's environmental code, Nickell said. Such complaints are investigated by the city's environmental inspector.

"You can pretty much park whatever you want to in your driveway as far as the law goes," Nickell said.
