Ouch. 17th Century meets 21st. 1MN1NJA, Virginia has vanity plates which allow motorists a mini-billboard for self expression.
I am Ninja? In this case, many adjectives spring to mind that would better describe the motorist.
In 21st C Charlottesville we have parking laws:

Sec. 15-136.  Parking–Curb regulations.
(a)   It shall be unlawful for any person to park a vehicle with the left side of such vehicle next to the curb in such a manner as to have such vehicle facing the flow of traffic in the lane of traffic nearest to the curb at which such vehicle is parked.

The police will often write a warning ticket for such a violation. In the case pictured above, there was one other piece of vehicular code in play, parking in the handicap spot.

Sec. 15-133.  Designation of parking spaces reserved for persons with disabilities; unlawful use of such spaces.
(b)   Any vehicle properly displaying a disabled parking license plate or removable windshield placard issued pursuant to Va. Code § 46.2-731, § 46.2-739(b) or § 46.2-1241 may be parked in a parking space reserved for persons with disabilities for up to twenty-four (24) hours, subject to the restrictions set forth in subsection (c) herein. It shall be unlawful for a vehicle not displaying disabled parking license plates or removable windshield placards issued pursuant to Va. Code § 46.2-731, § 46.2-739(b) or § 46.2-1241 to be parked in any space reserved for persons with disabilities.

I am on the road to understanding black and white photography.
