The commissioner of transportation is hereby authorized to establish diagonal parking zones and to designate such zones by placing and maintaining suitable signs and markings. Such diagonal parking zones shall be established only after appropriate engineering studies have indicated that diagonal parking will not be hazardous and at all times will leave not less than 20 feet of available roadway for the ingress and egress of vehicles between the rows of parked vehicles. Diagonal parking zones shall be established only on streets at their termini beyond the last cross-street intersection, on streets which serve only as service drives, or on streets designated as service drives by ordinance. The commissioner shall consult with the parking administrator in the selection of locations for diagonal parking zones.
It shall be unlawful to park any vehicle in any designated diagonal parking zone or space except diagonally to the edge of the roadway and within the pavement markings.
