A photoblog about Russian tourists failing to park in Lappeenranta.
You can't always make it!
You do see Finnish cars parked this way occasionally. Beats making a U-turn and parking parallel, I suppose.
And as far as I understand its all legal because of EU laws has allowed this type of parking.
I see no problem with this... unless that nice SUV blocks a driveway.
It is still illegal to park like this in Finland...
taken from http://www.finlex.fi/fi/laki/ajantasa/1981/19810267#L2P26 and translated it to english.Road Traffic ActCHAPTER 1general provisions26 §Stopping and parkingThe vehicle may be stopped or parked on the road only to the right side.On one-way road is stopping and parking also to the leftside of the road allowed.The vehicle is stopped or parked parallel to the road andas far as from the middle of the road.
Omg, is this really illegal? I park like this all the time... Oops. And I'm from a small town in western Finland. Sorry... Although I can't really see why this would be illegal. The car takes the same space, regardless of the direction it is parked in.
How can you leave from that place without breaking the law if the street is one-way street?
Use your common sense, this might be illegal, but it's no harm. Please don't post photos like this.
We park like this in Spain - only without snow...
In case someone doesn't know the "cool" license plates are bought for few hundreds of USD. Due to number is Russian I bet the driving license was bought as well. Anyway, I like the letters there "М...НУ" that could be translated from Russian as "I crumple up".
Russian rules of the road it is not forbidden. And they are elaborated according to the International Convention on road traffic. Did the Finnish rules should not conform to it?
In Finland this kind of parking is simply not legal. It is perfectly acceptable in many other countries, but not here.
Thank you. Now we know that this feature is Finland.----------------------------I think that your blog must not only identify violations of the traffic rules, but also to give answers about the specifics of driving machines in Finland. And it will be very good!
One year ago, I received a parking ticket in Malmö, Sweden, for parking like this.Of course it is not legal in a two-way road, because the driver has no clear view of the street when starting the car again and, theoretically, s/he has to enter the opposite lane to continue driving.
