§ 94-89. Parallel and angle parking.  

Latest version.
  • (a)

    No person shall stand or park a vehicle in a roadway other than parallel with the edge of the roadway headed in the direction of lawful traffic movement and with the right-hand wheels of the vehicle within 18 inches of the curb or edge of the roadway, except as otherwise provided in this section. On one-way streets and within residential districts, vehicles may be parked on the left side of the street, with the left-hand wheels within 18 inches of the curb or edge of the roadway, unless signs prohibit parking.


    The traffic director, with the approval of the city council, shall determine upon which streets angle parking shall be permitted and shall mark or sign such streets, but such angle parking shall not be indicated upon any federal-aid or state highway within this city unless the state highway commission has determined by resolution or order entered in its minutes that the roadway is of sufficient width to permit angle parking without interfering with the free movement of traffic. Angle parking shall not be indicated or permitted at any place where passing traffic would thereby be caused or required to drive upon the left side of the street or upon any railway tracks.


    Upon those streets which have been signed or marked for angle parking, no person shall park or stand a vehicle other than at the angle to and with the hood or front end of such vehicle next to the curb or edge of the roadway indicated by such signs or markings.


    Whenever parking spaces are marked by lines on the pavement, whether for parallel or angle parking, a vehicle must be parked entirely within the lines of the parking space.
