The Department of Transportation (DOT) inspects sidewalk cellars doors that are damaged, bent, broken or wobbly. DOT also investigates sidewalk cellar door openings left open and unprotected causing an unsafe condition.

You can have cellar doors open during a delivery as long as a person is in the area to guard against someone falling in.
