Question: Is it illegal to block someone’s driveway?
According to Texas Transportation Code Sec. 545.302, drivers cannot park in front of a driveway, whether public or private.
This also goes for blocking a driveway belonging to first responders such as firefighting vehicles.
Exceptions are made if you are loading or unloading passengers for a short time.
