Ask Curbed: Can I Park My Smart Car Sideways?

New, 76 comments

High gas prices and choking congestion have finally gotten to one reader, who is considering the itty-bitty, adorably wee Smart car. But wait - just how easy is it to park the maximally mini car (just 9 feet end to end): "I'm thinking of buying a Smart car, and am wondering exactly what the parking rules are for LA? I know parking in the wrong direction on a street will get you a ticket, but what about perpendicularly to the curb? If the car end to end is smaller than the width of an Escalade or Hummer, will I still get a ticket if I park it bumper-to-curb?" [Image by flickr user Sam Felder]
