  1. Say thank you to your developer who built the development and the zoning or planning board that approved a development knowing full well that there are nowhere near enough parking spaces for the residents’ cars.

    Just one example of the worship of money that has replaced all other forms of Avoda Zarah.

    • Developer?? Planning Board? Clearly from this video this is a regular suburban type private street with individual single family homes, each house probably built one at a time many many years ago from the looks of them, and each with its own private driveway sufficient to park at least 2 cars … This isn’t an example of a “development” by a single developer that the planning board approved. Complain about developers and planning board approvals all you want, and often you’d be right, but at least make sure your complaint has anything to do with the case in point! No, this is a case of one person simply not considering how their action will cause problems to someone else.

  2. By making the Driveway the width of a entire lot, To increase amount of parking spaces you actually Are taking parking spaces from the street So most streets have nowhere to park. The width of the Driveway should be minimized so there is still some place to put your garbage cans and/or park.

  3. I’m not so sure about the validity of this complaint. Isn’t the curb on a PUBLIC street dedicated for PUBLIC parking (unless authorized signage indicates otherwise)? It certainly isn’t PRIVATE property, available for a homeowner’s private use. For example, you can’t put cones out there to reserve the spot for yourself, even if it’s in front of your house. Perhaps the homeowner needs to put the trash cans at the end of the driveway — and not take away a public parking spot — and too bad if you have to move them out of the way to pull in or out! Anyone know if there’s any regulation about this?

  4. Looks like a single driveway to me. In the future, I would put my garbage cans a bit more in the street then so cars can’t block them out they block the road. People should be more considerate. You don’t block mailbox or garbage cans. Walk a few more feet and be a mentch.

  5. You make a good point but you overstate it. The person ultimately responsible is the person who parked irresponsibly. But he wouldn’t have to or think he has to if the people responsible for the amount of space provided for parking and garbage pickup had done their jobs. If you think the planning/zoning boards and builders in Lakewood are thinking about reasonable quality of life when they approve and build these developments, you are really out of touch.
