Driveway Laws

In everyday life individuals are dealing with thousands of other drivers. Often when out driving you are dealing with people that are pulling in and out of driveways. When doing this there are common mishaps that result in motor vehicle accidents. When dealing with an accident that has occurred in a public or private driveway, these individuals seek information about the driveway laws pertaining to a certain states. When looking for driveway laws that deal with another individual blocking their driveway, or how can someone obtain assistance when being in an accident in their own driveway, there are thousands of Experts who are available and have many years of experience when dealing with the driveway laws.

If a person backing into driveway is hit by a car by another person. How could this matter be solved?

In most situations, the person is allowed to take the driver of the other car to small claims court. In court, the person should provide the judge with the amount that it would take to get car fixed. When doing this police report would also be recommended to show the judge of what happened at the scene of the accident.

In the state of Arizona if a person has been falsely accused of backing out of their driveway unsafely causing a minor accident they were cited for AZ Code 28-701A where the speed box was empty what is their course of action?

According to the AZ code 28-701A the statute states that: “D. The maximum speed provided in this section is reduced to the speed that is reasonable and prudent under the conditions and with regard to the actual and potential hazards then existing, including the following conditions:
Approaching and crossing an intersection or railroad crossing;
Approaching and going around a curve;
Approaching a hillcrest; and,
Traveling on a narrow or winding roadway.”

How far does a person have to park from a driveway in the state of Michigan?

Mich. Compiled Laws, Section 257.674 only prohibits parking "in front of" a driveway. As long as the vehicle isn't blocking the driveway (by any amount), there is no requirement as to how far away it has to be. A person would be allowed to park the vehicle, unless there's another restriction that applies (i.e., a crosswalk, fire hydrant, etc.)

Who should be contacted if a neighbor parks an RV in front of another person’s house in California?

According to the Vehicle code that’s in California there isn’t a certain distance that a RV has to be from a driveway that is parked on a street. The only restriction that the state of California has against motor vehicles when dealing with the parking spaces would that any type of vehicle is prohibited from blocking another individuals driveway.

Can a handicap parking permit be allowed in a private gated community?

The permit may or may not be allowed depending on if the street is on a public road or not. Also, if it’s on a road that is private then the California Vehicle Code 22658 applies. http://www.dmv.ca.gov/pubs/vctop/d11/vc22658.htm is the link that link that shows the California Vehicle code. The person should obtain all documentation of their disability and notify government officials. If vehicle is removed from the premises in violation of Code 22658; then the person can seek legal action.
