Public streets must be open to everyone

"Excuse me, ma'am, you can't park here." "I can't? Why not?" "This is my house." "Oh, I'm sorry. Is a repair truck or an ambulance coming?" "No, this is my house." "I don't see a 'No Parking' sign, the curb isn't yellow and I'm not blocking your driveway. Why can't I park here?" "Because this is in front of my house!" What law allows a public street to become a private street just because the owner wants it? Is The Point neighborhood in Beaufort becoming a gated community? Sue Jarrett Lady's Island
