Re: No Parking Beyond This Sign - but sign all the way on the other side of the block
Not necessarily.. If it says “No parking beyond this point” then that covers all points from where the sign is located to the end of the block!
There is no way you can get to the end of the block without passing the sign that is posted somewhere within that block! Just because you didn't see it, it doesn't mean it isn't there!
If any part of the car extends beyond the sign prohibiting parking, then you it is illegally parked. Of course it would follow that if the entire car is past the sign by a few feet )or several feet) then the entire car is within the “no parking zone” and it is illegally parked!
So you're driving down one block looking for parking, you are closest to the right side of the road where the signs are usually posted, as you're looking for parking, you're also supposed to be looking for signs that might prohibit parking... So again, there is not way you can get past the sign without having the opportunity to look for it and see it. Even if you didn't see it, park, walk back and look for it.
I guess they don't teach everything in traffic school!!!
Not for a "No Parking Beyond This Point"...
Not for a "No Parking" or a "No stopping No standing" signs.. Those would mean the entire block is covered by the restriction.... Unless another sing is posted that indicates otherwise.
The only time that another sign is posted is if it ends a prohibited action.. or begins a new one. Example"first half of the block has a "No Parking" sign, and then at some point half way through, there is a sign that indicated either "End No Parking Zone" or "One Hour Parking" or some such thing...
It looks like Missouri is still using the 2003 Federal version of the MUTCD which you will download
HERE. You can look through that for specific signage standard and optional guidelines.
I am right 97% of the time... Who cares about the other 4%!
