This is the Nevada law that fines a driver that does not park close enough to the curb.
It is a requirement for a driver to park with the right-hand wheels within 18 inches of a curb.
With this ticket there is a $35 fine.
There is also a chance that the car may get towed in addition to the ticket.
Getting towed can be expensive and add another few hundred dollars to the overall cost.
When a vehicle is parked too far from the curb it can make it unsafe for other motorists to get by and in some instances cause an accident.
It is the responsibility of the driver to park the vehicle in a safe manner.

More on NRS 484B.457
This Nevada State law is concerned with angle and parallel parking.
It also has to do with parking, stopping and standing on highways that are under the authority of the Department of Transportation (DOT).
- Any vehicle parked or stopped on a highway where there is a curb nearby must be no more than 18 inches of the two right-hand wheels parallel to the curb. Unless otherwise noted in the law.
- In the case of a one-way highway local authorities can by ordinance permit parking of vehicles within 18 inches of the left two tires.
- Angle parking may be permitted by ordinance on any highway except for a highway that is maintained and constructed by DOT. This is unless the DOT determines that there is proper width available on the road that will not interfere with the traffic moving freely.
- The DOT may place traffic-control devices on the highway under its jurisdiction. This can stop or restrict stopping, parking, or standing on the highway. It is a violation if these restrictions are stated.
Parallel Parking Tips
Parallel parking along a road or highway can be intimidating and not so easy if there are multiple cars along the road.
Getting the wheels lined up within 18 inches of the curb can be more difficult than one might think.
- Make sure that it is a legal parking space when parking.
- Choose a space with plenty of room where you can line up the tires parallel and close to the curb.
- Pull up in front of the space and make sure you have your signal lights to let others know you are parking.
- Put car in reverse and move steering wheel at a 45-degree angle in order to get in the spot.
- Then straighten out the wheel and bring the vehicle parallel to the curb.
- Then pull forward and center the car in the spot.
It is important to select a spot that has enough room where you won’t hit another vehicle while parking.
I would recommend that you would need a good 3 feet in order to not be too tight in the spot.
Later when you get out it will be more difficult if the cars are too close to each other.
When making sure that the space is legal look for signs in the area.
Fire hydrants and other details may make for illegal parking if not careful.
Make sure you use your mirrors when parking.
There may be blind spots so double check for safety.
If you need a someone to get out and help guide you in the spot it is better than hitting another vehicle.
Getting those wheels tight to the curb may be the last thing on your mind when parallel parking.
Take your time and make sure that you are parked legally and avoid a NRS 484B.457 ticket.
