Hi, how is this?
This is the Port Richie codes for General Parking and Parking on Road ways.
This is a copy of the law. I apologize that my link did not take you directly to it.
(a)Definitions. As used in this article, the terms "highway," "road," and "public right-of-way" shall be deemed to refer only to those highways, roads, and public rights-of-way lying within the corporate limits of the city. (b)Prohibited acts. Within the corporate limits of the city, no person shall stop, park, or leave standing any vehicle, whether attended or unattended, upon the paved or main-traveled part of the highway, road or public right-of-way in violation of this section, except as otherwise provided for in this section. (c)Exceptions to prohibited parking on highway, road or right-of-way. (1)This section shall not apply to the driver or owner of any vehicle which is disabled while on the paved or main-traveled portion of a highway in such manner and to such extent that it is impossible to avoid stopping and temporarily leaving the disabled vehicle in such position, or to passenger-carrying buses or other vehicles-for-hire temporarily parked while loading or discharging passengers, where highway conditions render such parking off the paved portion of the highway hazardous or impractical. (2)This section shall not apply to the operator of any vehicle providing delivery, service, maintenance or construction at any location within the city, provided such vehicle is not temporarily parked before 7:00 a.m. nor later than 7:00 p.m. and the vehicle does not obstruct the flow of traffic or create a traffic hazard.
