What is the ordinance for parking near driveways? I have seen homes on our street that have their visitors park blocking their driveway, and I have also seen some cars park so close to someone else's driveway that it would be unsafe to pull out because it would be blocking the view. Is there a distance of clearance from the edge of a driveway like there is with stop signs?


"City ordinance prohibits blocking a driveway when parking. The police department responds to these calls on a complaint basis, which means a homeowner/tenant must make the original complaint. When responding, an officer will evaluate whether the vehicle is parked so as to prohibit exit from the driveway, and if so, a citation is issued and the vehicle can just be ticketed or it can be ticketed and towed, based on the request by the homeowner/tenant. There is no set criteria for the distance a vehicle can park abutting the driveway like there is at intersections and crosswalks."

Ask the City Of Laramie is your chance to send the city that burning question that you have always wondered about such as: “Where can I get a city parking permit?” or “Why did my water usage rates go through the roof?”

Please note that the City of Laramie will answer as many questions as possible at their discretion.
