TRAINING BULLETIN 06-02 DRIVEWAY BLOCKAGE VC 22500 E A driveway must have a cut curb to be valid. The complainant must be able to drive their vehicle into the building (garage) or 100% onto their private property (carport) in order for a vehicle to be cited AND towed. If the garage is used for storage and can not accommodate a vehicle, the vehicle can be cited, but should not be towed. Discontinued or abandoned driveways are not legal driveways – NO cite, NO tow. Loading docks, with a cut curb, may be cited and towed for 22500E. If the curb is not cut and is normal height (approx. 6”), but there is a garage, it is NOT a valid driveway. If the curb is not cut but is only one or two inches high, and there is a garage or carport, it IS a valid driveway. Be advised there are very few places where this is the case. The driveway starts where the curb starts to drop. It is NOT determined by the garage door‟s location. If ANY part of the car extends into the cut portion, you must cite. If the complainant requests a tow, no matter how slight the blockage, you must tow – NO EXCEPTIONS. If a legal driveway has adjoining valid red zones and the vehicle is blocking the red zone but does not extend into the dropped portion of the driveway, the vehicle may be cited for the red zone – TC 38A. The vehicle may be towed for the 38A – “RED ZONE HAZARD – OBSTRUCTING DRIVEWAY”. Run a 10-28/10-29 before citing. A 587 driveway-cite only does not require contacting the complainant as long as there is a good vehicle description, unless the vehicle is registered to that address and it is a multiunit dwelling. A 588 driveway cite and tow requires a 909 with the complainant. You must request that the complainant opens the garage door to verify that it is a working garage to tow the vehicle. Run a 10-28 & 10-29 on all driveway complaints before citing. It is a courtesy, not mandatory, to notify the R/O to move their vehicle if they live close by. The vehicle should be cited first. Obtain verbal consent from the complainant before notifying R/O.
