JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Jacksonville residents could soon face fines for backing their vehicles into their driveways.

The city council is considering a bill aimed at cracking down on people who store vehicles that don’t work on their property.

The Florida Times-Union (https://bit.ly/1RCbNwy ) reports proponents of the bill say code enforcement officers have a difficult time cracking down on abandoned vehicles because they need to see license plate information to write a citation. They aren’t allowed to go onto private property to get the information if the vehicle is backed into the driveway.

The proposed bill would require the owner to write down tag information with two-inch tall letters and post it in a location that’s easy to spot.

The bill also cracks down on outdoor storage of disabled refrigerators, freezers and other appliances.
