[Ord. No. 25-2017, 10-23-2017]
Except as otherwise provided in this Chapter, every vehicle stopped or parked upon a roadway shall be so stopped or parked, in the direction of authorized traffic movement, with the right-hand wheels of such vehicle parallel to and within eighteen (18) inches of the right-hand curb where a curb is present; or within eighteen (18) inches of the right edge of the road surface without interfering with the free movement of traffic where a curb is not present.
The City Traffic Engineer shall determine upon what 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 the City unless the State Highways and Transportation 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.
On those streets which have been signed or marked by the City Traffic Engineer for angle parking, no person shall park or stand a vehicle other than at the angle to the curb or edge of the roadway indicated by such signs or markings.
The City Traffic Engineer is authorized to issue special permits to permit the backing of a vehicle to the curb for the purpose of loading or unloading merchandise or materials subject to the terms and conditions of such permit. Such permits may be issued either to the owner or lessee of real property or to the owner of the vehicle and shall grant to such person the privilege as therein stated and authorized herein.
It shall be unlawful for any permittee or other person to violate any of the special terms or conditions of any such permit.
