It is the intent that a person requiring ingress or egress from a private driveway, alley or intersections of public rights-of-way shall have a clear view of the street and sidewalk in all directions and that persons using the street or sidewalk will have a clear unobstructed view of vehicles approaching the street from private driveways, alleys or another street and that the view shall not be obstructed by parked vehicles, fences, hedges, shrubbery, trees or any structure greater than three feet in height above the ground elevation of said driveway at the street line. This unobstructed vision clearance shall apply to the area bounded by the first 15 feet from the point of intersection of the boundary lines of public or private rights-of-way in both directions and a line connecting the same. This unobstructed vision clearance shall also apply where lot lines intersect street lines and when the edge of a driveway for either of the adjoining lots is within 15 feet of the lot line.Trees with branches no lower than 12 feet above the street grade within these areas of vision clearance shall not be deemed obstructions. Persons responsible for violations of these vision clearance requirements shall be served written notice by the Code Enforcement Officer ordering correction.
