Stop blocking sidewalks with your stuff

I am a senior and walking is my main exercise. I walk in the neighborhood, but I continually have to walk out in the street around obstructions. More and more SUVs, sedans, 4x4s, etc., are parking on the sidewalks these days. The vehicle code does not state that a sidewalk is a parking spot! Commonly, basketball equipment and garbage containers also block the sidewalks. It is much more dangerous to walk out into the lane of traffic to make a detour around vehicles, etc. These people cannot walk a couple of extra steps and park legally?
