Delaware drivers have a lot of rules and regulations to consider when they are out on the road. Of course, they have just as many things to consider once they are getting ready to stop and find a place to park. You have to make sure you are not breaking any of the laws and regulations for parking and stopping in the state so you can avoid getting a fine or having your car towed and impounded.

Parking violations

One of the first things that drivers need to get into the habit of doing when they are getting ready to park or when they need to stop in an area is to look for any signs and indications that they might not be allowed to park there. For example, if there is a red curb, it is a fire lane, and you cannot park your vehicle there. If the curb is painted yellow, or there is a yellow line at the edge of the roadway, you are not allowed to park there. Always take the time to look for posted signs as well, as they can often let you know whether you can park in an area or not.

If you do not see any signs, you still need to follow the law, as well as your common sense. Drivers are not allowed to park in an intersection or on a crosswalk. In fact, they are not allowed to park within 20 feet of these areas. You are not allowed to park on a sidewalk, or within 15 feet of a fire hydrant. The hydrants may have markings on the curbs, or they might not. If you see a hydrant, make sure you do not park anywhere near it. If there were an emergency, it would be difficult for the fire engine to get to the hydrant.

You cannot park within 20 feet of a driveway entrance to a fire station, and you cannot park within 75 feet of the entrance on the opposite side of the road if there are signs posted. Drivers can’t park within 50 feet of a railroad crossing unless there is other signage that indicates other rules for that particular crossing. In that case, abide by those rules.

Never park within 30 feet of a flashing beacon, a traffic signal, or a stop sign. Delaware drivers are not allowed to double park, and they cannot park alongside or on the opposite side of any road obstruction or excavation if the result would impede traffic. It is also against the law to park on any elevated structure on a highway, on a bridge, or in a tunnel.

Always think twice before parking. In addition to the above rules, you never want to park in any place that would obstruct the traffic flow. Even if you are only stopping or standing, it is against the law if it causes traffic to slow.

Keep in mind that the fines for these infractions can vary based on where they occur in Delaware. Cities and towns have their own fines for the parking violations.

Honda Accord - Brake Pads Replacement (Rear) - Phoenixville, Pennsylvania
I specifically asked for Bernie to come back, since I was so pleased with the work he did on our other car. This time I got to meet Bernie personally. He is a kind family-man who exhibited the quiet confidence of someone you would expect with the 50 years of automotive experience that he has. I felt very comfortable giving him the key to my car. Two of my kids (ages two and four) came out to greet him, since they remembered him from his first visit. Bernie is great around kids and was very kind to my two-year old son who was trying to "help" Bernie do his job. Thanks again, Bernie!
Honda Odyssey - Brake Pads Replacement (Front, Rear) - Phoenixville, Pennsylvania
I was very pleased with Bernie's work, professionalism, and courteousness. Best brake job I have ever had, and I have had many done (and several done myself, but not on this vehicle). This was a maintenance appointment -- not a repair of something broken -- so I was surprised when the brakes felt so much better after Bernie did the work. You can really see the care he took with our vehicle when I examined everything after he was finished. Thanks, Bernie!

BMW Z4 - Brake Pads Replacement (Rear) - Phoenix, Arizona
Brian knows what he is doing and I am so happy yourmechanic.com suggested him for my Z4 car inspection prior to purchasing and even happier he was available to perform my 1st service on the vehicle I purchased. His knowledge on the brand gave him ability to to an in depth inspection and he communicated very well informing me what to prepare for in ownership of my BMW. When he came to perform maintenance on my vehicle he shared so many tips with me. I will absolutely be having Brian come back out when I need future servicing on my car.
