Parking Ticket: 25$

For parking the car facing the wrong direction.

Moral: Know Michigan Road rules.

That's tough. Yup, good idea to read up on your state's driving laws. I'm having my brother read the California Driver's Handbook before he can get on the road :)

Just Curious...Isn't the rule that we are supposed to park on the same side of road as the moving traffic is...In other words if we are parking on the R.H.S. of the road, the front of the car should face the direction in which other vehicles move forward and vice-versa. Just Checking...
