COLLISIONS

Every year, collisions are caused by persons who cross the centre line of streets to angle park on the opposite side. Persons backing out of the angled parking stalls have struck these vehicles that have suddenly driven into the space behind them. The law prohibits a person from driving to the left of centre of any street and from driving across a solid line carrying a fine of $172.
