LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Please Don't Park Your Car On My Sidewalk

Must we be reminded of State Laws when it comes to our property? Shouldn’t it be a simple courtesy to respect our neighbor's property? Yes, I think so too.

So I’m asking, please do not park your vehicle on my sidewalk. I don’t need the expense of repairing/replacing a water/sewer line connected to my home. Some vehicles that have parked on the sidewalk are PSEG trucks, police vehicles, delivery drivers aka UPS, Postoffice, Amazon, Mister Softee, rude neighbors and their out-of-town friends, Mr. Softee, and so on.

Really folks, please give me the respect I have continued to show you for the last 50 years. I have a better idea, how about the City of Gloucester put a sign up NO PARKING ON SIDEWALK. It would surely be appreciated. The Law says: Illegal parking in New Jersey

Unless a police officer directs you to park, or you need to do so to avoid an accident, you should never park in any of the following locations. Never park on a crosswalk, between a safety zone for pedestrians and adjacent to the curb or within 20 feet of the safety zone’s end.

Do not park on a sidewalk, in a bus stop zone, or within an intersection. Never park so that you block a public or private driveway either. It is discourteous to other drivers and people who may need to get into or out of their driveway. Do not park within 10 feet of a fire hydrant or within 25 feet of a crosswalk at an intersection. You cannot park within 50 feet of a stop sign or a railroad crossing either.

Thank you for your kind consideration.
