How long can a vehicle be parked on a residential street and not be moved. The vehicle apprears to be registered and operable but it has not moved for over 4 weeks.

How long can a vehicle be parked on a city street without moving? Assume the vehicle is operable and registered.

As long as the vehicle is legally parked (parked with its right tires along the curbline, not obstructing a driveway, not parked too close to a traffic sign or fire hydrant), operable and does not display an expired registration or motor vehicle inspection sticker, then it is considered legally parked.

Is there any regulation on things like a commercial truck with a lift/cherry picker and an attached trailer with a bobcat on it being parked on residential streets? (for "storage", not during use)

Thanks Chief Renshaw. Who handles the complaint? The police or code enforcement?

How far away does a vehicle have to be from a corner and/or stop sign? And isn't there something about there has to be 12 feet clearance between cars (if parked on both sides of the street)?
