Ask HPD: Is it legal for commercial vehicles to block traffic, crosswalks while unloading?

Question: I regularly see commercial vehicles blocking traffic and crosswalks while unloading. Is this legal? What can be done about this?

Answer: Vehicles are not allowed to block lanes, intersections, or crosswalks.  If you observe vehicles causing a traffic hazard, please call 9-1-1 to report it.  Depending on the violation, drivers may be cited for fines of up to $260 and the vehicle may be towed.
