CC Outtake: Wrong Way Parking – Is It Wrong?

CC 215 001 925

I’ve wondered whether wrong way parking is a genuine crime, as I have done it a few times in my old truck in front of my house, as a way to avoid an Armstrong-steering U turn. When I saw this VW bus with a ticket, I decided I’d take a look.

Sure enough; $25 worth of wrongness. I understand the rationale, in denser, urban areas. Just a little bit further out, where I am, there’s very few cars parked on the street anyway. And if I do it again, I will know for sure that I’m breaking the law.
