Are there any laws that prohibit a homeowner from parking up to his property lines in front of his home in Colorado Springs?
A policeman said that on the street, we had to park 5' away from our neighbors driveway; that would be 5' inside our own property line. He has a circular driveway that abuts our property line.

Yes, there is a local Parking ordinance 10-12-101 B that says exactly that. .Here is the text of that law.

 

STOPPING, STANDING OR PARKING IN SPECIFIED PLACES:

10.12.101:

No person shall stop, stand or park a vehicle except when necessary to avoid conflict with other traffic or in compliance with directions of a police officer or traffic control device, in any of the following places:

A. On a sidewalk or pedestrian walking area:

B. Within 5 feet of a public or private driveway:

C. Within an intersection:

D. Within 5 feet of a fire hydrant:

E. On a crosswalk:

F. Within 20 feet of a crosswalk at an intersection:

etc... The list goes all the way to R.
