Editor's Note: Welcome to the SF Parking Hack of the Week, wherein we'll hook you up with one awesome, game-changing SF parking hack every Friday courtesy of the guy who wrote the book on them (no, like, really, he wrote a book about them).
First (this is important): the part of the curb on either side of a driveway, or the “curb cut” as SFMTA calls it, is legally considered to be part of THE DRIVEWAY, not the curb. There were 29,272 citations issued last year for blocking a driveway. Many of these citations were given for having part of the bumper of the car jutting into the “curb cut” space. Logic leads us to believe that the curb cut is part of the curb, not part of the driveway, but illogically/legally, it is indeed part of the driveway.
