Question: Can I park a broken-down vehicle in my private driveway? Answer: No. There are Woodford County, City of Versailles, and City of Midway ordinances that deal with the parking of non-operable, wrecked, junked or discarded vehicles on private and public property. In short, you may not park such vehicles on public roads for the purpose of maintenance or repair unless it is in an emergency situation. Also, the parking of such vehicles on private property is considered a public nuisance and prohibited if they aren’t enclosed in a building or out of public view. The ordinances recognize situations that may necessitate the temporary storage of such vehicles. The Woodford County and Versailles ordinances permit up to 20 days, but the Midway ordinance only allows for 10 days. Any such vehicles stored beyond these periods are subject to removal.
