    Smart Car parking

    Smart Car parking 24th Sep 09 at 11:16 AM
    Does anyone know if it is legal to park Smart cars sideways, i.e. back-in parking in otherwise parallel parking zones? Do any of you park like this?

    I have just bought a Smart car for commuting and used to see many other Smarts parked in this way but lately haven't see any. Is this because it is no longer legal to park this way or is it just because of the problems this causes, such as people parking so close you can't actually open the door to get into the car.

    I have done some searching but can't find much information, not even on the Smart website, and even Smart themselves wouldn't give me a definite answer.

    Many thanks in advance.
