Lansdale Police will investigate what they can do to ease parking problems being faced by a resident on the 500 block of Penn Street, near Penndale Middle School.
"Regularly, his driveway is blocked by cars parking along there," said Councilman Jason Van Dame during this month's public safety committee meeting. "He called the department many times to come out and ticket the cars blocking him. But is there any signage to recommend?"
Lansdale Police Chief Robert McDyre said the police could recommend painting of the curb yellow to help those situations.
"It is not marked well," Van Dame said. "There's a telephone pole (in front of the house). You go during the school day and you can see cars parked up close to the driveway."
Van Dame told McDyre he thought the cars were mainly from teachers parking during the day or seldom at night for events.
"He usually parks his truck at the end of the driveway and leaves it there, so people can see there's a car there," Van Dame said. "It's been an ongoing issue for many years."
McDyre said he would look into the situation with the homeowner.
He also said there may not be "Do Not Block Driveway" signs available in Pennsylvania.
"I don't remember seeing signs in Pennsylvania," he said. "New Jersey has them at the shore: Do Not Block Driveway. But, I don't think I've seen them in Pennsylvania."
