Bobtail in downtown Denver. Is there a risk besides break-ins if I park overnight on a residential side street?

I can easily just park at the conpany yard and grab an uber, lyft, or taxi...

Bobtail:

"Bobtailing" means you are driving a tractor without a trailer attached.

Yes, yes there is a problem.

Denver Parking Code 54-464 Large Vehicle Parking Sec. 54-464. Large Vehicle Parking It shall be unlawful for any person to park or allow to be parked: 1) A truck exceeding six thousand (6,000) pounds empty weight or twenty-two (22) feet in length, an automobile trailer and/or boat trailer not attached to a licensed vehicles, a truck-tractor or semitrailer, or a disabled or inoperative vehicle for a period of time longer than two (2) hours during any given week on a public right-of-way adjacent to any property which has been designated as a residential zone district or which contains a single-unit or multiple-unit dwelling; except where such vehicles are engaged in rendering services in the immediate area, or where such vehicles are parked adjacent to a zone lot on which is located a motel or hotel being used by the operator of such a vehicle
