The Department of Streets approves pavement markings to ensure that traffic moves safely and efficiently. If people are parking at the end of your legal driveway and blocking it, you can apply for a permit to paint a no-parking “X” on the pavement.
If you want to report a property owner who painted markings without approval, contact 311.
There is no cost for this permit. You will be responsible for painting the pavement marking.
Print the paper application yourself, or use the online form below to request a hard copy by mail. Once completed, you must mail your application to:
1401 John F. Kennedy Blvd.
Philadelphia, PA 19102
The engineer will determine the appropriate markings and illustrate them for your reference.
The markings you paint must comply with the measurements noted on the permit. They should be 4 inches wide and in white paint only.
You should keep a copy of your permit on the premises. If the City asks you to remove the markings, you must do so within three days.
