    well..... back your trailer up in the driveway.... looks like you have no choice here..... if possible do the yard in the mornings.... or whenever the customer/s is at work

    Get in, get out. You have a right to be there too. I just get as close to the curb as possible and get done in a timely manner and everyone stays happy

    I pull into the driveway. If that is not possible, pull as close to the curb as you can and set your cones out. I have seen a cop stop and tell another LCO to move out of the street.

    Pull up on to the curb or sidewalk if their is one. Some times on a 2 lane street with a turning lane we will park in the middle of the road. Its dangerous but some times we just don't have any other choice.
