One of the most important rights of the motorist is his right (some say privilege) to park on the street and highway. This right is very limited, however. It is restricted by the traffic regulations and nuisance statutes enacted and enforced in the various states under their police power to protect the health, safety and general welfare of their citizens. Those most interested in the motorist's right to park are other motorists and landowners whose property abuts on the highways. The rights and remedies of these parties determine the scope of this review.
