NYPD or PEA only look to see if that "No Parking- Violators Will Be Towed" sign is on private property. They obviously don't know, and or maybe give a rat's behind if the space is legal or not. That will be someone else's call....

As for moving people's cones, cans or whatever on SI; yea, things have gotten out of hand. But can't say would have the same balls. Just don't want the hassle and surely risk to some eegit damaging my ride.

People take their spots seriously out on the Rock. In a way can't blame them; city allows all that development but there isn't any parking on site. Tons of town houses or whatever crammed onto what was a single family home lot, but where are people supposed to park? Living on SI isn't like Manhattan, a ride isn't a luxury but a necessity.

Actually there are unique parking requirements for all new homes on Staten Island based on the zoning. I live in an R3X zone. All new homes in R3X zones must have 1.5 off-street parking spaces per dwelling unit. A 1-family home must have 2 spaces, a 2-family home must have 3 spaces. A 3-family home must have 5 spaces but virtually no new 3-family homes are being built on SI.

74 pages of rules regarding Accessory Off-Street Parking and Loading Regulations, see pages 14, 15 & 43 for SI specific rules:

Any LE or PEA walking/driving down a street or avenue and sees not one open parking spot knows or should know something is wrong. There has to be a hydrant somewhere..... Happily for a good number of those who park on hydrants many NYPD and even PEA ride on by in their vehicles not paying attention. Unless someone makes a phone call nothing likely will happen. Have seen people parked on hydrants from about 9PM until next morning and never get a ticket.

PEA know their territory and often besides no parking zones zoom in on blocked hydrants. Have seen people pile trash bags or whatever over or around a hydrant to disguise so they think can park. PEA or NYPD will simply move a bit of stuff out of way to confirm existence of thing, then write ticket.

Above is why even after a heavy snowstorm and hydrant is techinically covered, you can still get a ticket for parking that may *not* be dismissed. https://newyorkparkingticket.com/bea...g-ticket-snow/

Years ago we had this PEA that would start his sift going down the block around 8AM or so and tagging everyone in a no parking zone (church, commercial driveway, etc....). He'd then swing back around a bit after ASP was in effect to get those that didn't move their ride in time.
