Section 14-297 Moving vehicle from parked position.


    (a) Angle parked vehicles. A vehicle parked at an angle to the curb on any street in the city shall be backed out at that angle until it has cleared other parked vehicles. The driver of such vehicle shall then proceed in the direction in which he is most nearly headed, provided that no vehicle shall be moved from such parked position unless such movement can be made with reasonable safety and without interfering with other traffic upon such street. The driver moving a vehicle from such parked position shall yield the right-of-way to all vehicles which are in motion upon such street.

    (b) Parallel parked vehicles. The driver of a vehicle parked parallel to the curb shall not move such vehicle from such parked position unless such movement can be made with reasonable safety and without interfering with other traffic upon such street. A driver moving a vehicle from such parked position shall yield the right-of-way to all vehicles which are in motion on such street.
