Then there are the sidewalk parkers: never legal but I respect their panache. But within this group there are three sub groups: #1: two wheels on the sidewalk:
#2: Entire car on the sidewalk (gets lots of points for moxie):And #3: the timid sidewalk parkers who just get one wheel on the sidewalk. I think they need to be more committed and get at least two wheels up there.
There is also a hybrid breed of parkers: the crosswalk/corner parkers. I can see their point of view, I mean crosswalks and corners are just wasted space and should be better utilized.
If you are a corner/crosswalk parker you have lots of options. You can park parallel or perpendicular to the crosswalk or you can park directly on the corner and lop off a bit of two crosswalks in the process. Just depends on your particular preference I guess.
