Friday question of the day

Is it ok to park your car in your backyard if you don't have a driveway? I.E. is it ok to park your car on the grass in your backyard? Personally, I don't see why it is necessary here in Petworth because there is so much street parking. What do you guys think?

i don't see an issue.

personally i'd love to have all cars parked in the back of houses to leave more room on residential streets for people.......

could be that the person has expired tags and/or it's not operational, in which case parking out back saves him from getting a ticket. if cars in yards were the rule, rather than the exception, it would be an eyesore...but one on a given street isn't the worst thing. I'd rather complain about my neighbor's incessantly barking dogs. And overgrown weeds.

1) You can get a ticket for parking a non-operational car in your backyard for more than 90 days.

2) We park in our backyard b/c we've got Florida plates, baby! Whooo!! Come get me DMV! What! What!

PoP--I think you should have a special edition on Petworth Dogs. The incessantly barking dogs are so common in the PW, as are completely untrained pit bulls. What are the responsible--poop-scooping, dog-training, spending time in the park with your pooch--dog owners to do?

im with j.con... is petworth the barking dog asylum of the city?
and while i truly love animals-these (*&^$$$#)(*! and their loose, very untrained pit bulls. (can you tell im getting old?)

What snobs! Your backyard is yours to do anything you like. Park a car, change the oil, drink liquor from a brown bag, take a nap. Residential codes exist if something is dangerous, like bad wiring, not to determine whether you can park on the grass.
