How To Park

How to Park – The Must Read Manual for Teen Drivers created by the International Parking Institute in collaboration with AAA Mid Atlantic is a free and downloadable booklet. This HOW TO PARK GUIDEbooklet advises drivers on ways to avoid parking citations and automotive accidents as well as step-by step instructions for parallel parking. Education about parking is helpful for teen drivers and experienced drivers alike. Although this booklet explains basic rules about parking, each state, city or county may have its own laws and regulations concerning parking. This booklet is meant as a guide and is not representative specifically of the Parking Regulations for the City of Roanoke. For example, in the City of Roanoke, it is a parking violation to park within 5 feet of the edge of a driveway; however, in other cities, it is a violation to park within 10 or even 15 feet of the edge of a driveway. The Guide contains basics such as:

  • 8 Parking Basics
  • A Dozen Parking “No-Nos!”
  • 7 Ways to Avoid Getting a Parking Ticket
  • How To Park: Perpendicular and Parallel
