Parking Tips

The average car measures between 18- and 20-feet long. That means you need to leave over a car length and a half between the stop sign and the front of your car if you want to avoid a ticket in jurisdictions where the required distance is 30 feet. If you get a ticket, the fine varies by jurisdiction.
