In Hoboken, NJ, the law is no parking within 25 feet of a crosswalk. There is a very small, painted stripe to help drivers know where the parking zone starts. This demonstrates a very affordable way to “sign” intersections should a similar intersection buffer law be enacted in Portland.
This is a complaint from someone who received a ticket.
“Here’s what I came out to this morning.(apparently given on sat. at 8.30 am), a 54 dollar ticket for parking within 25 feet of a crosswalk. I left plenty of room to handle the fire hydrant (and the entire intersection was flooded when I parked, so I doubt you could even see any lines on the curb)–a great infrastructure we have here. This is really obscene. You can see the little white lines on the other side of the street–supposedly HPU is marking where it’s really ok to park, but I leave that to you to figure out. Peter Cunningham had sent an email about this a few weeks ago.”
