I have a "gum ball tree" which hangs over my driveway. No place to park my car because of the falling tree sap. When does the trap sap stop running?

Sap normally only runs in spring. If you are seeing a long term dripping of "sap", it is likely not sap but rather aphids. This article will explain more and will help you treat it:
