The ticket states i was 36cm from the driveway. i was parking close to the curb but not their actually driveway. Please see the picture attached, is this actually ticket-able? Am i suppose to carry around a tape measure and measure every time i am close to a driveway?

You're already parked on the curb drop and the driveway is angled. The picture you provided is also a tad misleading:
More than a justified ticket, in my opinion.
The edge of the curb is the beginning of the driveway. You're supposed to give a 45cm buffer between your car and the end of the curb, meaning you should be parked more than a foot more forward. I'm assuming whomever wrote the ticket started measuring from there. 36cm would mean you were parked right against the end of the curb.hamilton11 wrote:So i received the ticket because i was parked 36cm over the edge of the curb and not the driveway?
I'm not sure I understand. The sidewalk (ramp) is essential to the driveway. Are you suggesting the measurement is the distance between your vehicle and the asphalt of the driveway?hamilton11 wrote:Just to clarify, what exactly am i obstructing if the driveway doesnt start until a ways after the ramp?
But they are measuring left to right. So left to right along the curb (as in picture), you are right at the end of the curb where the driveway starts and would need to move the car to the left.
