parking ticket - "Head in only"

I got a parking ticket I found to be hideous. I backed into a spot and recieved a $35 ticket for not being "HEAD IN ONLY"

sure there probably was a sign, but why would they want cars to be head in only? i always felt backing into spots was safer - less collisions backing out.

backing into a parking spot facing a wall dirties the wall with the exhaust of the car. Probably moreso for a diesel ...

that's like the ticket my wife got in Montreal for leaving her car unlocked overnight. Silliest ticket ever. Mind you, they are French.

Sounds like California is a silly place too.
