I think it is fair game if it is the street unless there is permit parking.

The rule years ago was the car had to move at least every 24 hours

Unfortunately, if im not mistaking, there is no rule that states that only the owner or renter of the property can park in fron of its house. As you may know, there are more than 1 car per house average. 2 cars may not fit in front of a house, so the other alternative would be to park it somewhere else. it is not fai to get the car towed or summoned for this reason. Sorry for this answer but it is just comment sence.

The above is from "CHAPTER V POLICE REGULATIONS* " , looks like it does not cover street parking.

Have the same situation here in Perth Amboy, mostly because of all the illegal apartments and shady landlords here. What people do is they get a handicap parking permit or plates and then they go either to city hall or the parking authority (not sure which) with their permit and then they get a handicap parking spot in front of their home. Other than that, there's not much else you can do, but I feel a homeowner should be entitled to park in front of their home.

Unless the car is in disrepair/flat tires and appears abandoned ANYONE can park in front of your home.

The street is city property in fact the strip of grass between the sidewalk and street is also city property.

What right do you have to exclusive use of a public street? Do you own it? Did you pay for it %100? If you want unlimited parking PAY for it, IE get a farm, on PRIVATE PROPERTY. After all if there is someplace else for them to park... well so can you.

Morally I feel I have right to park, I maintain the place, keep it clean, move the grass, and you know when I have to use trimer , I can not do it, because someone else parked the car which I can not move it. What it the car get damaged it I tru to do so, who is going to take that responsibility. Just paying tax should not give you only rights and no responsibility.

There is no MORAL right to park. You can piss off your neighbors by having an unkempt yard. But the street is public property.

We all park at least one car per family/household our street. On snow days when we shovel out our street cars all of us show respect for the spot that YOU worked on. In summer I don't "cone" off the area around my property so others having the summer parties cannot park in front of our home.

It is not legal.

It used to be that the auto has to moved at least once in 24 hours.

I live across the street from a bar and people always park in front of my house even though there is more than enough parking in their lot. I get pissed off, but cannot do anything about it. It's legal for anyone to park on the street. All you can do is cut your grass really close to the car and get it dirty :)

When I get people parking in front of my house too many times overnight I make sure to use my crowbar and smash their side mirrors at 3am to make them think the traffic is too dangerous to park there. They never park there again.

I have the same problem. I park two of my vehicles in fromnt of MY HOUSE and a popup trailer and a third car in my driveway.

what gets me is these neigbors and their friends decide to park in front of my house. sometimes blocking part of my driveway. and when I look at their house, it's clear.

most neighbors leve my spots for me, and I leave theirs for them.

but we have a few who just dont get it.

i have blocked their butts in 24 hours before soas they couldn't move their cars. I have parked blocking their driveway from entrance, exit until they m,oved their car from MY spot

I have even turned on my sprinkler in hopes to leaving their freshly washed car with spots. and I even love it when they leave a window cracked. it's water my lawn time.

even put my trash cans right up against their bumpers.

i feel. the street in front of my house is for me.
