Is it illegal to block a sidewalk (walk way) leading to the street?
Each city has its own ordinances but blocking access to the street is a parking violation in most jurisdictions.

Let me know if you have additional questions otherwise a positive rating is appreciated.

You say each city has its own ordinance regarding blocking access to the street. Does that include Los Angeles, where I live?

Here are the parking regulations.

I am looking to see if there is one explicit about blocking a walkway.

This appears to be the applicable one...

15.44.120 - Parking and driving restrictions.


No person shall drive any vehicle within any facility except on roadways and parking areas provided therefor.


No person shall park or allow a vehicle to stand within any facility except in a parking area designated therefor.

(Ord. 11437 § 1 (part), 1976: Ord. 6544 Ch. 8 Art. 3 § 8304, 1954.)

Actually California also has state law measures about this.
