Back-In Parking on S Washington Avenue is Here
As part of Royal Oak’s new parking meter system, a small number of parking spaces located on S Washington Avenue and W Seventh Street will be designated as back-in angle parking.
Back-in angle parking uses the same process and motions as parallel parking but is much easier and safer. And the spaces are wider, too! It provides motorists with better vision of bicyclists, pedestrians, and other cars as they exit a parking space and enter the roadway. In addition, back-in angle parking allows safer access to trunk space and allows passengers to enter and exit a vehicle safely.
We have set up a space for you to practice in the west lot of the Royal Oak Farmers Market.
Of course, you don’t have to use the back-in angle parking spaces. The downtown decks are clean, spacious, and well lit. Best of all, your first two hours are always free whenever you park in one of the city’s four public parking structures. You may also prefer to park in a surface lot or in any number of traditional on-street parking spaces located throughout the downtown area.
