A Norwalk photo #13


NORWALK, Conn. — A photo taken by a reader, Saturday on River Street.

The reverse angle parking spaces were painting last week and enforcement of the traffic regulations began today, Monday, Sept. 23. This driver will be subject to a ticket if the car is parked that way again.

“The violation would be parking on the wrong side of the street. It is the same as if a motorist crossed into the oncoming lane to parallel park,” Mayor Harry Rilling said Sunday. “Hopefully, the advisory signs will minimize the chances of that occurring.”

Great photo!

Can someone tell us if the yellow “crash posts” were supposed to be in the middle of each park space, not on the sides?

Seems like they are needed to keep a driver from backing up onto sidewalk..

Did stripe painters mess up??

The new way to park is one thing. The pay-to-park fees are another. I am not a fan of more paid parking in Norwalk.

The crash posts are placed to the sides of the vehicle to block access and encourage use of trunks. The Common Council wants to ban the use of the interior of your vehicle. This is their attempt to reduce global warming.

I signaled, slowed, and attempted to reverse into a spot on Wall Street on Saturday but had to abandon that plan because a Wheels bus had basically attached itself to my bumper leaving me no room to reverse. Thankfully I found a spot on river st, but come on, the city really needs to educate their public transportation drivers.
Also, why are the painted lines soooooo long ?
