JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- For those who prefer to back vehicles into their driveways, a proposal pending before City Council would make it illegal to park their cars that way unless their license plate information is clearly visible from the street.

The proposed bill is aimed at cracking down on the visual blight that occurs when vehicle owners store cars that don't work on their property.

Proponents say it's needed because city code enforcement inspectors face problems cracking down on abandoned vehicles because they need to get the license plate information in order to write a citation. If they cannot see the tags from the street because the car is backed in, they cannot go onto private property to get a closer look at the front of the vehicle.

The bill filed by City Councilman Warren Jones says that if a vehicle's tag isn't visible from the street, the owner must write down that information with 2-inch tall letters and post it in a location that inspectors can easily see from the street.

The bill also says that if an owner puts a cover over the vehicle, the license tag must either be visible or the tag information must be posted.

The bill also would crack down on the outdoor storage of disabled refrigerators and freezers along with "equipment, furnishings, furniture, appliances, construction materials or any other items which are not designed to be used outdoors."

The bill number is 2015-377.

I can understand people don't want a junkyard for a neighbor, but isn't there already laws that cover that?

I prefer to back into parking spaces. I find it much easier to deal with traffic this way. I'm already aware of traffic (and [perhaps more importantly] they're aware of me) before backing in and this way when I leave I'm already set up to pull out into traffic facing forwards.

Here in Ontario we are required to have license plates on both the front and back of car anyways.
