Welcome to a commonly known traffic code like fucking everywhere? Maybe in some states it isn't a thing but places I've been it's kinda a big deal to park "against traffic". And that includes even tight narrow Denver streets that are so skinny you get 2 lanes of parked cars and basically only enough for 2 way traffic if both sides creep pretty slow to avoid hitting anything.

I sympathize about in front of your own drive way. My parent in laws have same dillema especially since on the narrow front face of the house there's a fire hydrant right past the drive way eliminating another spot basically. But gotta realize, giant pita if nothing else for them to even begin to attempt to figure out who's a resident vs not of a home. Though /tinfoil would be they also don't want more barriers if they need to SWAT the house and ram a bear cat in the garage door or something lol.
The idea of them patrolling neighborhoods ticketing people for things that have no effect on anything is what's upsetting.
Upsetting is cop response, "People shouldn't have a problem with doing what they're supposed to do."
Supposed to do. It's being micromanaged. It's intrusion. It's needlessly burdensome and uncomfortable.

Convenience=liberty, ie: life, liberty, pursuit of happiness

But foreel, what's the issue?
How does parking this way increase any danger/risk?

It prevents head-on collisions from people pulling out from parking and not paying attention to oncoming traffic. It also looks neater? I've been given warnings about parking against the right of way when I was roofing, and didn't want to back up my trailer in someones driveway just to be parked the right way.

Preventing head on collisions makes sense, but still, residential vs. business should be considered.

My sister lives on a cul-de-sac that's one way. Everyone parks on the inside of the circle to avoid driveways and shit and that happens to be on the left side. A cop came along one evening and started writing everyone a ticket for parking on the wrong side. Apparently someone on the HOA board had complained. Not the same as conefed's issue since this is one way, but evidence that people can get retarded about that issue. Find out who complained and burn their house down.

In order to park the wrong direction, you have to drive on the wrong side of the street, however briefly, correct? Then, if it is a tight spot, you might have to do some parallel parking or other back-and-forthing. And if you're female, that could take 20 minutes. (I kid!) Regardless, you're technically driving into incoming traffic in order to park there. And you're doing the same thing when you leave. Yes, I know it might be a practically deserted street and it is so wide open that no one cares, but if you get to do it, then the people in busier sections of town want to do it too, and eventually you end up with people cutting across traffic to grab a spot, even in a residential area.

I mean, I see your point and would likely share your frustration, but there's a reason it is a ticketable offense. We drive and park on the right side of the street, so that everyone is on the same page and you don't get an unexpected surprise. It sucks that some situations seem a little silly to enforce it, but at what point would you draw the line between it being ok and not? If you can't come up with a specific delineation, that everyone would agree with no less, all of it has to be not ok to be fair.

If you're parallel parking in the traditional way, aren't you driving the wrong way on the street part of the time anyway? So by that logic parallel parking would always be illegal.

And actually I think it should be. I fucking hate that shit.

Second monitor no longer being detected in Display Options after removing second 1080Ti card. The monitor is showing up in Device Manager. Nvidia drivers are being a special kind of retarded and acting like they're not installed, so I can't access the Nvidia graphics options. Likely due to 417.35 driver update that I skipped until today.

You know you can file against that on exactly that premise. Get the collections and negative reports against your credit wiped. And since it's in collections, you can likely get away with paying much less than you originally owed. Sucks, but it could be a win-win, minus the effort involved.

Bought something online last night, put in my address and yadda yadda. Went to go pay for it and didn't want to get up to get my wallet, so I used Paypal instead, well Paypal decided to use it's own shipping address to a state I don't live in anymore. Went and looked at paypal and the address isn't even listed in my available addresses so I don't know what happened. Plus, I've got two addresses listed that I can't delete because they are for "billing purposes".

So rustled.

People that either don't respond to a text or get back to you hours/days later saying they were busy. How are you so busy you cant take 5 seconds to respond to a text?
