Parking on opposite side of road may become legal in some areas

Parking on the wrong side of the road may soon become legal for drivers in residential areas, The Advocate reports.

State law requires the ride side of a car to be parallel to the curb when parked, according to the Advocate. But Sen. Danny Martiny is challenging that law with a bill that suggests parking on the “wrong” side of the road should become legal.

“It is not a public safety issue,” Martiny said, according to The Advocate. “People park in front of their house.”
