Double parking is illegally parking next to another vehicle that is properly parked in a stall or on the street. When you park this way, you prevent drivers from leaving their parking spaces and stall the flow of traffic. If all parking spaces are full, try to find one farther away. Double parking is a traffic violation punishable by fine.
