Your first step to getting your 'No Parking' painted is to contact the Zoning Dept. first & then the Evil Empire.....oops.....I mean the Parking Authority will do the painting.

One more thing, those diagonal lines mean nothing. They are just a curtesy. A car is legally parked as long as it doesn't break the curb cut.

Good luck.

The city will paint no parking across your driveway in the street
with a diagonal stripe on both sides of it. I had it done about a year ago. It was $35.00 and well worth it. Before, the signs I had on the gate were ignored.

Our hats off to the fool who gave us days of enjoyment with his bizarre justifications for his illegal actions.

My personal favorite in that thread was the front yard underground garage.

Blockage of all or any part of the sidewalk is prohibited. But if it is as bad as you say, call the Parking Authority from 6am to 10:30-11pm or the non emergency police number.

Call Zoning. But be forewarned that if the driveway, legal or not, has been there for awhile you may not succeed in getting everything put back the way it was. Now it may be a different story if is obvious that it is a newly installed driveway. If your neighbor is in the process of making himself a driveway then call the police.

The police will wait for the driver to come back and then issue a ticket. Also I invested in a "No Parking" sign from Home Depot and that has help a lot. Good Luck!


Parking Authority is ready to rock & roll at 6am until 10:30-11:00 in the evening.

The sign is probably the best advice. Think you can get the offender towed if you're blocked out of your driveway - best you can hope for is getting the car ticketed if you're blocked in.
it is the reverse, actually

If your driveway is legal, call the Parking Authority and ask them to have the "No Parking" sign painted in the street in front of your curb. You will then send them a check for the cost. I think it's around $25.

Thanks for the tip. I'm also wondering if there is a way to get the curbs painted yellow (can we just do it?) so people parking know not to park there? I'm sure it wouldn't matter, the parking over here is dodgy to say the least. My welcome to the neighborhood when we were having some work done in our driveway and I had to park on the street briefly was a car running over the curb to take my spot. Other than that, the neighbors have been cool.

Well, we are here in Greenville just over a week and finally settled in. Our block is pretty quiet here (besides July 4th), but I have a question for home owners with a driveway. If someone is blocking your driveway, what kind of recourse do you have? I've had multiple incidents of vehicles partially blocking my driveway because they wanted to squeeze in a spot too small for their car. I've been able to get out, but I don't want to have this happen all the time. I have some thoughts, but not sure what to do. Any suggestions would be welcome.
