Typical, the lines before the signs


Typical, the lines before the signs

In a section of Queens, NY, the local transportation department painted new angle parking lines on the streets, but the locals felt the lines had been painted backwards. Instead of angled toward oncoming traffic, they were the opposite. Chaos ensued. Read all about it.

When asked the DOT folks said simply that this was the “new” way to park, you back into the space and then pull directly out into traffic, rather than backing out into traffic. Much safer. Oh, yes, the signs explaining all this will go up next week. In the mean time, you are on your own, New Yorkers.
