  1  1    Section 1.  Section 321.361, Code 2009, is amended by
  1  2 adding the following new subsection:
  1  3    NEW SUBSECTION.  1A.  Local authorities may by ordinance
  1  4 permit vehicles stopped or parked upon a roadway where there
  1  5 are adjacent curbs to be stopped or parked with the left=hand
  1  6 wheels of the vehicle adjacent to and within eighteen inches
  1  7 of the left=hand curb, if deemed safer than stopping or
  1  8 parking as provided in subsection 1.
  1  9                           EXPLANATION
  1 10    This bill relates to parking on the left side of a roadway.
  1 11 The bill permits a political subdivision of the state to adopt
  1 12 an ordinance allowing a vehicle to park on a roadway with the
  1 13 left=hand wheels of a vehicle within 18 inches of the
  1 14 left=hand curb, if the political subdivision deems it safer
  1 15 than parking on the other side of the street.  Current law
  1 16 prohibits a vehicle from parking with the left=hand wheels
  1 17 adjacent to the left=hand curb unless the roadway is a one=way
  1 18 roadway.
