Why did I get a citation for parking against traffic?

All vehicles that parallel park must park in the same direction as the flow of traffic. This is the case on both one way and two way traffic streets. The reason for this is because if you park in the opposite direction you will be pulling out of the space heading into the flow of traffic. See City code 361.05 (c)
