Code violation?

Is there a code violation in this wiring? This is in a large crawl space that I only use for storage. None of the wires are stapled to the lower edges of joists. They are #12 and #14 wires going to lights and outlets.

Code violation?

Thanks for the response. That is a dryer vent. Above it to the right is the main panel. The room above and away is the garage. I added some circuits for some lights and outlets in the crawl space.

If that corner didn't have so much piping and there was a possibility of adding living space there in the future, I probably would have threaded the wiring through the joists and studs.
