Default General and/or UAD question about driveway parking

I have only been counting driveway parking spaces if they do not block a garage. So if there is a garage with a driveway in front, I generally state zero parking (unless a car can park off the side and not block access to the garage). So today I have a new assignment. I submit with some really annoying AMC I am not used to. They have this automated checker program that refuses to accept my report because I checked the driveway box and/or filled in a value for the driveway surface, yet put a zero in the # field.

Am I doing this wrong? Is this a UAD thing?

What I bolded is a good thought...but over thinking. It's an either or type of answer...meaning if you use the drive assume there is no car in the garage (FO). So, yes and yes it is a UAD thing.

I think it's supposed to be how many cars you can park side by side, not tandem. Doesn't matter if it blocks vehicles in the garage from getting out.
That's what I do anyway.

I believe that they want you to put the number of spaces in the garage and if it does not have a garage, then the parking spaces....it does not want both.

Actually... they want both. It's important. Really, really important.

Says so right there on their automated checklist program thingy.

So there.

It doesn't look like they can get two cars in the garage. Unless the stuff by the door isn't an indicator of the rest of the garage space.

it would be kind of silly to have a driveway that fits 0 cars.

rule of thumb in our office is how many cars can you fit without having to move one
to get another out. the picture above would indicate 2, not 0. that is not a 0 car driveway.
