Reverse-Only Parking Annoys Plaza Midwood Residents


by Ashley Armstrong

CHARLOTTE, N.C.--There will be no more warnings for drivers who refuse to "back it up" in Plaza Midwood.

Starting today, violators who don't back into reverse-only spots risk a 25-dollar ticket. The newly completed spots are along Commonwealth between The Plaza and Pecan.

Charlotte Department of Transportation says the reverse spots will make traffic safer. However, drivers who live nearby say it's a headache.

C-DOT posted a 3-step how-to for the parking spots: signal right to park, pull forward and stop, then reverse into the open space.
