Can't park there

We are used to seeing garages with the "no parking" symbol on the door, meaning you cannot park in the street in the entrance to the garage. A house owner in the Lot was surprised to see a ticket on his car for "stationnement genant" in front of the entrance to his own garage.
He contested the fine and won in the lower court, but the Appeal Court reversed the decision, saying that the parking restriction applied to all vehicles as to park there could impede other users, including emergency services.
The infraction incurs a fine of 35 euros, up to 135 euros if the "stationnement genant" is on the pavement, pedestrian crossing, cycle lane or delivery space.
