“The driveway hasn’t been used in years, but I still got ticketed!”
There are only two instances when it’s legal to park in front of NYC driveways:
- If you are the owner, lessor or lessee of the lot accessed by the driveway, and the property does not contain more than two dwelling units. The parking may not violate any other provisions of the vehicle and traffic law or local law or rule concerning the parking, stopping or standing of motor vehicles.
- If the driveway has been rendered unusable due to the presence of a building or other fixed obstruction.
*Note: If there is a cone or any moveable object blocking the driveway this does not qualify as a “fixed” obstruction
