It shall be unlawful for the driver, owner or operator of a commercial motor vehicle, trailer, tractor or truck-tractor to park or cause to be parked such motor vehicle or trailer for a period in excess of two (2) hours on any street in a residential area; provided, however, that the motor vehicle or trailer may be parked in front of a place of business in such area during regular business hours or at the site of construction project during such time as construction is taking place.
A "residential area" is that area within the City limits zoned for residential use or principally used for residential purposes. A "commercial motor vehicle", as used in this Section, is a motor vehicle designed or regularly used for carrying freight, merchandise or other property or more than eight (8) passengers and licensed in excess of eighteen thousand (18,000) pounds. A "tractor or truck-tractor" is a self-propelled motor vehicle designed for drawing other vehicles, but not for the carriage of any load when operating independently; when attached to a semi-trailer the tractor supports a part of the weight thereof. A "trailer" is any vehicle without motive power designed for carrying property or passengers on its own structure and for being drawn by a self-propelled vehicle, except those running exclusively on tracks, including a semi-trailer or vehicle of the trailer type so designed and used in conjunction with a self-propelled vehicle that a considerable part of its own weight rests upon and is carried by the towing vehicle.
