When Diagonal Is Not Parallel in 1917: Obey the Parking Law
From the December 13, 2017, MidWeek "Looking Back."
1917, 100 Years Ago.
"An autoist coming to DeKalb yesterday afternoon stopped at one of the restaurants and drove up parallel with the sidewalk. It happened that the next two cars stopped at the same place parked the cars according to the traffic laws (diagonal).
"When the offender came to get started on his trip again some 30 minutes was necessary before he could get away from the curbage. Safe to say that the next time the same motorist stops in DeKalb he will do as DeKalb people do with regard to parking automobiles."
