For those of you who live in residential neighborhoods, what side of the road is legal to park on? I have been under the impression for years that only parking to the drivers right, is the law in a residential area, or in Texas...period.
The reason I'm asking is for my dd. She lives on the first corner of a area with only one entrance, with at least 12 blocks of houses behind her and all those cars must pass by her house to get to the school. Her house is on the corner. the entrance is right across from a elementary school, so everyone who lives in those houses behind her, has to drive right by her house to get to the school to drop off, and pick up their kids. There is no parking area for all of those cars, so those cars line up in front of her house, on both sides of the road, and basically block her in every morning and afternoon. Since the cars are parked on both sides of the road going one way, it makes it extremely difficult for a car to drive the other way and almost impossible for anyone to turn into their own driveway, or get out of it. Is this legal to do? Can she call the law and try to have it stopped? Those cars are taking away her right to enter and exit her property at will.
It wouldn't be bad if they just parked on one side of the road and left the other side free, but they don't.
