I live in Lebanon, Indiana. I was at a local Kroger grocery and parked on the side of the building about 40-50 feet from the building. I’m at the end of a row of marked parking spaces in a very large area ( have pictures) that does have stripes on the asphalt. There are no markings on the pavement and no signs that identify this area as “no parking”. “Parking in a fire lane “is referenced on the ticket. To me, it looked like an area where the parking lot painters ran out of room for spaces and simply put stripes in the space. I have a Corvette and always park in places where I’m not as likely to get dinged by other cars. That’s why I parked way on the SIDE of the building. This Kroger actually has a fire lane in front of the store which is clearly marked and painted according to the statute.
I have chosen to contest the ticket. I have pictures of the spot etc
Good luck. The diagonal stripes in the paint signify that the spot where you parked is NOT a legal parking space.
I'm licensed to practice law only in Indiana, and we've never met, so I can't give you "legal" advice. My answer is simply "friendly" advice based on my experience as an attorney in Indiana, my knowledge of federal and common law, and common sense. Even if you are in Indiana, employment law questions are very fact specific, and based on the limited information you provided in your post, I can't give you legal advice, and my answer is intended as general information only. It doesn't create an attorney-client relationship.
