Re: Parking on My Sidewalk Ticket
Simple answer: no
The house was built before 1990. So my question is can I be grandfathered out of this law.
I don't know the solution for your situation but your suggestion is definitely not it either. You choose what vehicles you drive. You choose what you put in your garage. If nothing else, do not leave the room in front of the garage such as you do for the children's access and move the vehicle when they do need access.
I know it is an inconvenience but your inconvenience does outweigh the law.
This may sounds like an odd suggestion but is there the possibility of moving your mailbox? If others have this same problem and moving your and their mailboxes would help, consider grouping several mailboxes in some location that would provide some relief to those people.
I am not an attorney and any advice is not to be construed as legal advice. You might even want to ignore my advice. Actually, there are plenty of real attorneys that you might want to ignore as well.
