George Costanza

Who is right? The person backing into a parallel spot or going in head first?

10.44.030 Right-of-way when parallel parking.

A. For the purpose of this section, a “limited parking space” means an area open for lawful parking along side of, and adjacent to, a curb or edge of a street or road, which area is not of sufficient length to permit two or more vehicles to park therein at the same time.

B. Any person seeking to park his vehicle in a limited parallel parking space, whose vehicle arrives at the parking space prior to any other vehicle, and who proceeds beyond the space with his entire vehicle a distance not to exceed ten feet for the purpose of backing his vehicle therein, shall have the right-of-way over any person driving or attempting to drive any other vehicle directly into such limited parking space and the driver of such other vehicle shall yield the right-of-way to the driver who first arrived at the limited parallel parking space. (Ord. 95 § 102, 1962.)
