Oak Cliff is district in Dallas, TX that remains a distinct identity because it was once a separate town located in Dallas County. Mostly everyone parks their vehicle in the driveway, garage, etc. However, there are other people that insist on parking their vehicles on top of their lawns disregarding that it is against code compliance.

All throughout the nation people fail to comply with the code compliance. Enforcement on parking has
