Hello dizangels and welcome to JustAnswer.

The city of Petaluma has a series of parking restrictions in the municipal code which you can see here:

http://www.codepublishing.com/ca/petaluma.html

Click on Title 11, Vehicles and Traffic, then go to Chapter 11.40, "Stopping, Standing and Parking" and Chapter 11.44, "Restricted or Prohibited Parking".

I cannot tell from your description of this neighbor's parking habits whether or not he is violating any of these sections ... possibly, particularly if he does not move the vehicles as required by section 11.40.060.

Unless the city has otherwise signed the street, however, there is no limit to the number of vehicles that can be parked or the places at which they can be parked ... at least on the public street and as long as they don't block driveway access.

If any of the vehicles are commercial vehicles there are limitations on residential parking. And, if any of the vehicles are abandoned or inoperable, there are restrictions in Chapter 11.64 that you might want to look at.

Unfortunately, as long as these vehicles are properly registered with up-to-date license plates and are otherwise legally parked on the public street, there probably isn't anything you can do to prevent it.

Thanks for asking your question here on JustAnswer. If you have any other questions, please let me know.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
