Are bushes or shrubbery allowed to obstruct the vision of the driver?

The City ordinance reads that no foliage or structural features shall extend into the cross visibility area between three and one-half feet and seven feet above the surface of the public sidewalk area or shoulder. The intent of this restriction is to keep free a walkway without interference by or with vehicular travel. 

No encroachment of any nature will be permitted or maintained which impedes, obstructs or denies such pedestrian or other lawful travel within the limits of the right-of-way or which impairs sight distance for safe pedestrian or vehicular traffic. Furthermore, the permitted or the owner of the adjacent property shall maintain the hedges, shrubs, walls, fences or similar structures erected for landscaping purposes in a neat and orderly condition at all times.
