Stop, children, what's that sound? Everybody look what's going down

So remember the house across the corner, that had a work truck in the street overnight many times? They got to parking the truck in the driveway, so that, among other things, the street can be plowed when the city finally remembers it's supposed to plow our street after a snowstorm. But between (at least) two cars and the truck their driveway's pretty overloaded. The other night while going to bed I saw a police car out, and an officer examining their car, which crossed over the sidewalk. It looked to me like they were getting a ticket for blocking the sidewalk although from my distance I couldn't tell.
