Additional parking regulations.
(a) Except as otherwise
provided in this section, every vehicle
stopped or parked upon a two-way roadway shall be so stopped or
parked with the right-hand wheels parallel to and within 12 inches
of the right-hand curb or as close as practicable to the right
edge of the right-hand shoulder.
(b) Except when otherwise provided by local ordinance, every
vehicle stopped or parked upon a one-way roadway shall be so
stopped or parked parallel to the curb or edge of the roadway,
in the direction of authorized traffic movement, with its right-hand
wheels within 12 inches of the right-hand curb or as close as practicable
to the right edge of the right-hand shoulder, or with its left-hand
wheels within 12 inches of the left-hand curb or as close as
practicable to the left edge of the left-hand shoulder.
(c) Local authorities may permit angle parking on any roadway, except
that angle parking shall not be permitted on any federal-aid or State highway unless
the Department has determined that the roadway is of sufficient width to permit
angle parking without interfering with the free movement of traffic.
(d) The Department with respect to highways under its jurisdiction may place
signs prohibiting, limiting, or restricting the stopping, standing or parking of
vehicles on any highway where in its opinion such stopping, standing or parking
is dangerous to those using the highway or where the stopping, standing or parking
of vehicles would unduly interfere with the free movement of traffic thereon.
No person shall stop, stand or park any vehicle in violation of the restrictions
indicated by such devices.
