Parking on roadway for local deliveries

by Bob
(Winston salem, nc)

I am a local driver. I do residential deliveries most of the time. Meaning some times i have to park on roadway to unload. Today i got a citation because cop said i was blocking roadway.

If my truck can not fit in customers driveways where else am i suppose to unload at. Does anyone have a clue if there is something stating an exception to this type or circumstances?

Your problem is common in this industry. Especially in residential areas. Ever been to NYC ? Yikes. In theory, you cannot block a public street for any reason, however, the city's fathers didn't think about a truck making a delivery to a home. So in theory you would need a permit to block the street and/or make your delivery in a smaller vehicle that fits into the driveway, right ?

Or, block the street and if caught, argue your point or pay the ticket. Good luck...Jimmy
