5510 Dudley Court Arvada, Colorado
It is a violation of Model Traffic Code for the State of Colorado for vehicles to be parked "facing" oncoming traffic, and, yet, this is happening all over Arvada, and especially on Dudley Court.
It is unsafe for vehicles to be parked on the side of the road that faces oncoming traffic when they pull out, and also disrespectful of other drivers to do so.
Arvada needs to enforce this law before it gets out of hand. That, and people parking on sidewalks, people parked blocking driveways, and people parking on their lawns. While Arvada is slowly becoming a "Mobile Home Park," the city pats itself on the back telling themselves what a good job they do.

For some, unknown reason, people at this address have decided it is okay to park their vehicles entirely on the sidewalk without regard for other neighbors who may need to use the sidewalk to pass, and without regard for City Code.
I witnessed a small, white car parked entirely on the sidewalk with no more than the two, driver's side wheels touching the street. I have seen this practice before on busy streets, but this is not a busy street, and there is absolutely no reason for this person to park this way. It inhibits the ability of pedestrians to pass, and forces them to walk either on the grass, or in the street. This forces handicapped people, the elderly, and even women with baby carriages to try to negotiate oncoming traffic and endanger themselves instead of using the relative safety of the sidewalk.
I wish the city would send an officer up there to remind these people that the sidewalks need to be kept open, and that they are violating their neighbors rights by blocking easy access.
5465 Flower Court Arvada, ColoradoThe trees on this property are so overgrown that they are actually touching cars parked in the street in front of the house. The city code says these branches must be 15 ft. above the street, and 10 ft. above the sidewalk. They are not, and the city is ignoring the problem, forcing pedestrians to walk around, and cars either to park somewhere else, or be covered in branches.
7910 Ralston Road Arvada, COThe law firm that the Mayor works for owns this property so the trees are allowed to hang low over the sidewalk in violation of city code, and nothing is done. This issue has been reported time and again, all to no avail. They just say, "We'll forward this to the City Manager," and ignore it.
5372 Garrison Street Arvada, ColoradoThey were doing this before, but, for a while, they stopped. Now they are back at it. The people at this address are parking at least one of their vehicles so that it entirely blocks the sidewalk making it impossible for anyone to pass without stepping into the street. This is a violation of City Code, but these people are repeat offenders

Patrons at this establishment routinely violate the Colorado Clean Indoor Air Act by smoking directly in front of the doors of business when they could easily be in compliance with the law by walking around the corner. They also violate Arvada City Code in regard to this matter, and in regard to littering when they leave their butts all over the sidewalk.
This has been reported to the Arvada Police numerous times, and the city does nothing. The Police and the city do not seem to understand how secondhand smoke endangers the lives of citizens, especially the young, and the infirm. There's an ice cream parlor/candy shop right across the street.

5450 Dudley Court Arvada, ColoradoThe branches all around this house on a corner lot are hanging way too low over the sidewalk. In some places, they are almost touching the walk, and the city is doing nothing to bring them into code. I don't like to turn in my neighbors, but people need these sidewalks clear for walking. We shouldn't have to dodge branches to use public sidewalks.
5372 Garrison Street Arvada, ColoradoThere are too many vehicles on this property, and not enough space. They have already constructed a make-shift additional driveway, but there still is not enough room for all of their vehicles, all of their equipment, and all of their trailers. So, they just park in the driveway, and leave their vehicles hanging out over, and blocking the sidewalk. These violations have been reported to the city, and the city has refused to do anything about it.
5372 Garrison Street Arvada, ColoradoThere are too many vehicles at this location. That's fine as long as they are all legally parked. Unfortunately, that is not the case. Nearly all the time, and certainly every night, something is left parked so that it blocks the sidewalk. Often, it is a truck, but it has been a trailer, a car, or anything else they can't fit into their driveway. It would be a simple solution to park in the street, but they would rather park blocking the sidewalk, and force pedestrians into the street.
Blocking the sidewalk in any manner is a violation of Arvada City Code.
