No fence shall be installed or maintained except in conformance with the following regulations regarding maintenance of sight lines at street intersections and at driveway exits.
(a) Height and Location. No portion of a fence located within thirty (30) feet of the intersection of two (2) street right-of-way lines shall exceed two and one- half (2-1/2) feet in height, unless all portions of the fence above two and one-half (2-1/2) feet in height are at least seventy-five percent (75%) open. The same restrictions shall apply to any portion of a fence located along and parallel to a driveway within fifteen (15) feet of its intersection with a public sidewalk or public street, if no sidewalk is present.
(b) Nonconforming Fences. Any fence not conforming to the regulations of this section regarding maintenance of sight lines shall be made to conform if the owner or responsible party is so ordered by the Commissioner of Building and Housing for the purpose of eliminating an identified and demonstrated hazard. The Board of Zoning appeals may, however, permit retention or installation of such nonconforming fence if the Board determines that no hazard is created in a particular instance.
