Kid got a parking ticket and I have a question

She was in a municipal parking lot and got a ticket for backing in.

Actually she pulled through two rows, which left her backwards.
This was not street parking.

Is that really ticketable??
Maybe a city ordinance??

seems chincy to me.

What's the violation code?

CVC, aside from a grand total of about 3 codes, isn't enforceable in parking lots.

it'd have to be a muni code - parking generally is

I bet it's mostly to reduce the number of people who back into things

Wife already paid it so a mute point in ways.

With all of the backup cameras, everyone and their brother is backing in nowadays.

I love waiting for folks to back in to their parking spaces. Highlight of my day.

And is damn near a necessity for any non short bed/regular cab pick up truck. Pulling in is much more difficult and "dangerous" than backing in. Backing in I have camera and 4 mirrors. Pulling in I can't see anything.

I'd fight ticket.

Some cities have municipal codes against parking backwards in a parking stall.

It's a necessity for anything with a shitty turning radius as well as anything that's wider than a standard sedan. Most full-size trucks fall into these categories regardless of their length. The military taught me to back trucks in essentially so you can be ready to pull out and go and because unless you pull forward past a parking stall, back up and rotate the vehicle to your left and then try to pull in straight, you'll never get it in without hitting the vehicle next to you or parking like a total asshole. That training just stuck with me when I exited back into the civilian world again. It's simply easier to back a truck in. But I do it with all vehicles just out of habit.

Under what pretense? I could understand if it's outside of California and there's no front plate, but other than that what's the problem?

Agree on backing in. I back my taco in 99% of the time. In fact i do it so much that I’m terrible at just pulling in the “normal” way and I’m always on one line or the other. I end up having to back out and reposition.

I used to work at a university. Backing in was a parking violation, and there were posted signs prohibiting backing in. These are in paid permit lots, so I think it was for ease of parking enforcement to go up and down rows checking permits, if they're all situated the same way.
