parking ticket

I have had something close to 500 parking tickets so I am good at parking in no parking places.

The last one I got is a bit of a puzzle.

North York
No parking within 9 meters of a crossing road.

I was about an inch from the edge of the sidewalk so I did it.

What confuses me is the 9 meters thing.

The paid parking starts at a car length from the edge of the sidewalk
about 3 meters away?

kudos to the parking cops that can ticket a car within 2 minutes.

Just curious about this.

Cheers

It's a city by-law, naturally. But I'm not sure if I understand you.

Parking spots would only begin 9 metres from the corner of the cross road. If you were in a valid parking space how could you violate the by-law?

My attempt at drawing is weak from hopefully you get my drift.

of cross road and this is where the first vaild parking space should begin. Parking close to the curb has no bearing on the ticket as long as you didn't park on the sidewalk. Parking within an inch of the curb/sidewalk is not improper.

That,s what makes me go hummmmmm.


I was in a no parking spot no question.

The paid parking part starts about 15 feet from the curb.

also I am a courier and am allowed to park in any code 5 violation
for up to 10 minutes.

My concern is the 9 meters from the roadway?

Many spots are allowed with-in 9 meters of roadway.

I don't know maybe something unique?
