~~<p><strong>Question</strong>: My husband recently started working nights so has been parking on the street during the day. Our mail carrier left a note on his windshield that said on-street parking is prohibited within 30 feet of a curbside mailbox. Our neighbor's mailbox is curbside but ours is on the house side of the sidewalk so he would have to get out of his truck to access it. We park in that same spot all the time evenings and weekends and oftentimes cars park there during the day. Is the prohibition cited punishable with a ticket? If so, are there specific hours this type of parking is prohibited?</p>
<p><strong>Answer</strong>: There is no state or city law restricting parking in front of mailboxes.</p>
