Is it legal to park a boat (or similar recreation vehicle on a trailer) on a residential street overnight? We are having some problems with this in our neighborhood.

The vehicle can only be parked on the street while "expeditiously loading or unloading" the vehicle. To report violations, call police communications at 972.292.6010.

In a residential neighborhood, would that also apply to a parked vehicle with a trailer holding a car/truck?

A variation on a theme to this same question:

Is it considered a violation to park an empty trailer on the street?

Mr. Renshaw,
This seems a bit steep and let me give an example.

If preparing for a camping trip a resident of Frisco chooses to get all the gear and trailer loaded the night before (during daylight) so that the family can depart in the early morning hours, it looks like this would be allowed.

I would think the law would only apply to trailers parked on the side of the street for more than 24 hours.

The ordinance states the following:

Sec. 90-113. Restricted areas and times.
It shall be unlawful for any person to operate, park or stand any truck with a rated capacity in excess of two tons according to the manufacturer's classification or any bus, semi-trailer, trailer, and/or truck tractor upon any public street, highway, alley or public right-of-way between any street and alley, within any part of the city classified by the Comprehensive Zoning Ordinance of the city as a single-family dwelling district, two-family dwelling district or multifamily dwelling district. This section shall not prevent the parking or standing of the above-described vehicles and/or trailers upon any public street, highway or alley in any such zoned area, for the purpose of expeditiously loading and unloading passengers, freight or merchandise, but not otherwise.
(Ord. No. 89-10-07, 3, 10-17-1989)

The entire ordinance can be found here:

It can be parked in your driveway, just not on the street in a residential area.

Pleasse refer to this thread. The police department cannot enforce HOA covenants.
