Continuing the conversation about Back-In Angled Parking
Many jurisdictions, particularly those working to safely accommodate bicycle travel have begun to utilize another form of angled parking: “back-in” angled parking, also known as “head-out” angled parking or “reverse” angle parking. Evidence is mounting that back-in angled parking has some significant advantages, not just for bicycle traffic, but for automobile traffic as well.
NJDOT requested a summary of the efficacy of back-in angled parking, to have available as communities consider this as an alternative to traditional front-in angled parking. This memorandum explores the pros and cons of back-in angled parking and documents the findings of studies regarding back-in angled parking.
