It is often (especially on weekends) hard to maneuver around the masses of parked cars on both sides of the street, and I am wondering if any of the appropriate powers that be are looking into regulating this anytime soon. It is a hazard, especially in an emergency situation like a house fire, and I'm hoping something is being considered.

If you will email me your specific location I can have an officer check on it.

How close can cars park to a stop sign? Some stop signs in my neighborhood are not visible because trucks and/or SUVs park so close to the corner and in front of the homes that they block the stop signs.

Among other restrictions, a vehicle may not be parked in front of a public or private driveway; within 15 feet of a fire hydrant; within 20 feet of a crosswalk at an intersection; within 30 feet on the approach to a flashing signal, stop sign, yield sign or traffic control signal located at the side of the roadway.

If cars are parked literally adjacent to a stop sign on a continuous basis; such as, every night from 5:30 pm - after 7:00 am and every weekend, and blocking the stop sign; who and/or how should this be reported? If reported, is it something the police department will enforce? Many stop signs in Plantation Resort are blocked by such vehicles and visitors do not know they are there and run the stop signs.

Yes, if you will call police communications at 972.335.5505, we will have an officer investigate. Thanks.
