As a Binghamton parking enforcement officer was issuing tickets to violators on Court Street this afternoon, yet another motorist zipped across the opposite lane and drove right into one of the "back-in" spaces.

The new parking format was implemented as part of the Court Street Gateway Project a few months ago.

While many drivers appear to have adapted to the rules that are explained by signs posted between State and Water streets, some continue to be confused by the concept.

In today's lunch-time encounter, the officer explained the way the system is supposed to work before the driver left her SUV.

Similar back-in diagonal spaces also are in use on parts of Hawley Street downtown and Conklin Avenue on the South Side.
