Question : On a three way intersection where on the side of the through road has a lane available next to the curb for parking, would it be legal for me to park my car on that lane inside the intersection?

According to the BC Motor Vehicle Act, an “intersection” means: “the area embraced within the prolongation or connection of the lateral curb lines, or if none, then the lateral boundary lines of the roadways of the 2 highways that join one another at or approximately at right angles, or the area within which vehicles travelling on different highways joining at any other angle may come in conflict.” What the heck does that mean in English?

Of course, use common sense and check for all the usual things that would make it illegal to park there.


Thanks ‘B’ for this question.
