Something as elementary as the laws governing parking distances can easily be forgotten and need to be reviewed every so often.  Test yourself on the following.

It is a violation of New Jersey law to parking within how many feet of each of the following?

1.  Stop Sign

2.  Fire Hydrant

3.  Railroad Crossing

4.  Driveway Entrance to Fire Station

5.  Crosswalk or Intersection Highway

 

 

 

Answers:

1.  Stop Sign

50 Feet

2.  Fire Hydrant

10 Feet

3.  Railroad Crossing

50 Feet

4.  Driveway Entrance to Fire Station

20 Feet
5.  Crosswalk or Intersection Highway 25 Feet

The New Jersey parking statute which lays out these rules is 39:4-138.  The complete statute can be found below:

39:4-138 Places where parking prohibited; exceptions; moving vehicle not under one's control into prohibited area.

39:4-138. Except when necessary to avoid conflict with other traffic or in compliance with the directions of a traffic or police officer or traffic sign or signal, no operator of a vehicle shall stand or park the vehicle in any of the following places:

a.  Within an intersection;

b.  On a crosswalk;

c.  Between a safety zone and the adjacent curb or within at least 20 feet of a point on the curb immediately opposite the end of a safety zone;

d.  In front of a public or private driveway;

e.

(1) Within 25 feet of the nearest crosswalk or side line of a street or intersecting highway, except at alleys and as provided in section 2 of P.L.2009, c.257 (C.39:4-138.6); or

(2)  Within 10 feet of the nearest crosswalk or side line of a street or intersecting highway, if a curb extension or bulbout has been constructed at that crosswalk;

f.  On a sidewalk;

g.  In any appropriately marked "No Parking" space established pursuant to the duly promulgated regulations of the Commissioner of Transportation;

h.  Within 50 feet of a "stop" sign except as provided in section 2 of P.L.2009, c.257 (C.39:4-138.6);

i.  Within 10 feet of a fire hydrant;

j.  Within 50 feet of the nearest rail of a railroad crossing;

k.  Within 20 feet of the driveway entrance to any fire station and on the side of a street opposite the entrance to any fire station within 75 feet of said entrance, when properly signposted;

l.  Alongside or opposite any street excavation or obstruction when stopping, standing, or parking would obstruct traffic, when properly signposted;

m.  On the roadway side of any vehicle stopped or parked at the edge or curb of a street;

n.  Upon any bridge or other elevated structure upon a highway, or within a highway tunnel or underpass, or on the immediate approaches thereto except where space for parking is provided;

o.  In any space on public or private property appropriately marked for vehicles for the physically handicapped pursuant to P.L.1977, c.202 (C.39:4-197.5), P.L.1975, c.217 (C.52:27D-119 et seq.) or any other applicable law unless the vehicle is authorized by law to be parked therein and a handicapped person is either the driver or a passenger in that vehicle. State, county or municipal law enforcement officers or parking enforcement authority officers shall enforce the parking restrictions on spaces appropriately marked for vehicles for the physically handicapped on both public and private property.

No person shall move a vehicle not lawfully under his control into any such prohibited area or away from a curb such distance as is unlawful.
