You can usually find parking info for commercial info in your towns town code. Google is your friend.

Listen to Packrat..

Twenty years ago I lived on a private dead end road. The neighborhood was all 2 family duplexes with small kids everywhere. I came home from work on a Friday to discover some jackass had dropped a loaded semi trailer in front of my duplex. It was blocking half the road making it hard for everyone to drive around it. I was the owner of my duplex. I went around the neighbor hood and nobody seemed to know who it belonged to. I called the sheriffs office and a deputy came out and he called the highway patrol and they came over. There is a big sign as you turn into my street that says "No Trespassing, Private Property, Residents and Guests Only".

I called the trucking company many times and they just did not care. The jackass did this every weekend for 5 weeks straight. He'd back in down our private street and drop his trailer and drive a mile away to his house.The last time he had a tire in my grass and I got the county to impound his loaded trailer. In five weekends of dropping his trailer in that spot he destroyed that section of our private road. Myself and the neighbors had to get a lawyer to take him and his company to court and force them to pay to have the road repaired.

When his trailer got impounded and towed off he came into our neighborhood and threatened to shoot the place up. Had to get the cops again to arrest him for trespassing and threatening everyone.

Again make sure you have written permission. Don't be that guy..

EPU:

Electric Auxiliary Power Units

Electric APUs have started gaining acceptance. These electric APUs use battery packs instead of the diesel engine on traditional APUs as a source of power. The APU's battery pack is charged when the truck is in motion. When the truck is idle, the stored energy in the battery pack is then used to power an air conditioner, heater, and other devices

We had the same thing happen at my family's gravel quarry years ago. One Sat morning a dropped trailer showed up in our boneyard at least a 1/4 mile into the property past all the no trespassing signs.

Monday morning the guy shows up to get it and my uncle confronted him. Come to find out he had no connection with the family and just thought it would be a good place to drop. Got very belligerant when told it was private property and to never come back.

Sure enough a few weeks later he does it again. This time he returned to find about 20 tons of crushed stone pushed up under the 5th wheel and piled up in front of the trailer. Uncle did leave him a shovel to dig himself out.

Monday morning he was livid and kept demanding that we use a loader to remove it. We were under strict orders to ignore him. Took him until noon to finally dig it out and he had a nice visit from the sheriff. Sheriff told him that next time we were likely to just push the POS into the gravel pit lake. Never saw him again.

If you are in the city of Jacksonville it appears you may be allowed to park in the driveway. Another section definitely said you can’t park on the street.

I would double check with the police Dept.
