Birmingham considering law against parking cars on front lawns

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - The Birmingham City Council is considering a new law that would ban parking cars on front lawns.
The law's sponsor, Councilman Johnathan Austin, says cars and boats parked in front yards is an eyesore and drags down property values. His proposal would give owners about 30 days to get vehicles out of the front yard before they get a ticket.

The fee would be $50.

You would have 30 days to pay before you start racking up late fees at 50-per day.

The council is set to discuss the bill Tuesday.
